Jump to navigation. New analyses that use tree rings could settle the long-standing debate about when the volcano Thera erupted by resolving discrepancies between archeological and radiocarbon methods of dating the eruption, according to new University of Arizona-led research. The effects of the eruption were felt as far away as Egypt and what is now Istanbul in Turkey. Archeologists have estimated the eruption as occurring sometime between and BC by using human artifacts such as written records from Egypt and pottery retrieved from digs. Other researchers estimated the date of the eruption to about BC using measurements of radiocarbon, sometimes called carbon, from bits of trees, grains and legumes found just below the layer of volcanic ash. By using radiocarbon measurements from the annual rings of trees that lived at the time of the eruption, the UA-led team dates the eruption to someplace between and , a time period which overlaps with the date range from the archeological evidence.

Radiocarbon dating, invented in the late s and improved ever since to provide more precise measurements, is the standard method for determining the dates of artifacts in archaeology and other disciplines. Manning is lead author of a new paper that points out the need for an important new refinement to the technique. The outcomes of his study, published March 18 in Science Advances , have relevance for understanding key dates in Mediterranean history and prehistory, including the tomb of Tutankhamen and a controversial but important volcanic eruption on the Greek island of Santorini. Radiocarbon dating measures the decomposition of carbon, an unstable isotope of carbon created by cosmic radiation and found in all organic matter.

The Reliability of Radiocarbon Dating

Radiocarbon dating also referred to as carbon dating or carbon dating is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon , a radioactive isotope of carbon. The method was developed in the late s at the University of Chicago by Willard Libby , who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in It is based on the fact that radiocarbon 14 C is constantly being created in the atmosphere by the interaction of cosmic rays with atmospheric nitrogen. The resulting 14 C combines with atmospheric oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide , which is incorporated into plants by photosynthesis ; animals then acquire 14 C by eating the plants. When the animal or plant dies, it stops exchanging carbon with its environment, and thereafter the amount of 14 C it contains begins to decrease as the 14 C undergoes radioactive decay.

Jump to navigation. By developing new ways to use radiocarbon in tree rings, a UA dendrochronologist builds on the legacies of scientists before her, including the famed polymath Andrew Douglass. For decades, radiocarbon dating has been a way for scientists to get a rough picture of when once-living stuff lived.
