It is assumed that the ratio has been constant for a very long time before the industrial revolution.Is this assumption correct (for on it hangs the whole validity of the system)?But as the method was refined, it started to show rather regular anomalies.First, it was noticed that, when radiocarbon dated, wood grown in the 20th century appears more ancient than wood grown in the 19th century.(Ham et al., page 68.) C ratio in the past, or that this is "the technique's Achilles' heel" is incorrect.

Over the past decade we have witnessed a remarkable development and proliferation of accelerator mass spectrometers; these instruments have reduced the counting time by a factor of 100 and reduced the sample size by a factor of 1000 compared to the classic B-counting systems.

Of practical importance to a wide range of scientific disciplines is the radiocarbon calibration, which is used for converting radiocarbon ages to calendar years; essential for measuring time and rates of change for numerous scientific fields.

The correctness of the method depends greatly on the condition that in the last 40 or 50 thousand years the quantity of water in the hydrosphere (and carbon diluted in it) has not substantially changed. The method depends also on the condition that during the same period of time the influx of cosmic rays or energy particles coming from the stars and the sun has not suffered substantial variations.

To check on the method before applying it on various historical and paleontological material, Libby chose material of Egyptian archaeology, under the assumption that no other historical material from over 2,000 years ago is so secure as to its absolute dating.

BP using coral samples from our offshore coral reef core collections from Barbados (13.10°N; 59.32°W) in the western tropical Atlantic and Kiritimati Atoll (1.99°N, 157.78°W) in the central equatorial Pacific, and from the uplifted reefs of Araki Island (15.63°S; 166.93°E) in the western Pacific.

In addition, we have reanalyzed the radiocarbon and U age dates from our earlier radiocarbon calibration work using new pretreatment and analytical techniques and state-of-the-art instrumentation at higher precision; we report these new results in this WEB site and in Fairbanks et al., (2005).

When objects of the Old Kingdom and Middle Kingdom of Egypt yielded carbon dates that appeared roughly comparable with the historical dates, Libby made his method known.

With initial large margin of error and anything that did not square with expectation, judged as “contaminated,” the method appeared to work and was hailed as completely reliablejust as the atomic clock is reliableand this nobody doubted.

Suess explained the phenomenon by the fact that the increased industrial use of fossil carbon in coal and in oil changed the ratio between the dead carbon C12 and the C14 (radiocarbon) in the atmosphere and therefore also in the biosphere.

In centuries to come a body of a man or animal who lived and died in the 20th century would appear paradoxically of greater age since death than the body of a man or animal of the 19th century, and if the process of industrial use of fossil, therefore dead, carbon continues to increase, as it is expected will be the case, the paradox will continue into the forthcoming centuries.
