A new cosmogenic source added to ANSTO’s cosmogenic toolkit to study past climate and landscape change

ANSTO and the University of Wollongong are jointly operating a unique laboratory able to extract carbon-14 (radiocarbon) atoms out of a rock that is attracting global interest as a new tool to better understand recent changes in Earth’s climate system and rates of landscape change over the past 20, 000 years.

Atmospheric-produced radiocarbon results from the interaction of cosmic rays when they pass through Earth’s atmosphere and is extensively used in archaeology and climate change studies.
