Significance StatementIn 2007, ANU acquired a Single Stage Accelerator Mass Spectrometer (SSAMS) for measuring radiocarbon in materials. This dataset includes preparation information and results for samples that have been run in the ANU Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory since 2007 using the SSAMS.
Brief DescriptionData from radiocarbon dating sample sheets from the ANU Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory from 2007 - present.
Full DescriptionData is available as XML and Excel Spreadsheets exported from Filemaker Pro database.
