SHCal20: Atmospheric South data for calibration of 14C age

SHCal20R Documentation

Atmospheric South data for calibration of 14C age

Description

As 14C years is not equal to calendar years because atmospheric 14C concentration varies through time. Hence, data in AtmosphericSouth_CalC14 allows a calibration for mid-latitude Southern Hemisphere atmospher reservoir.

Usage

data("SHCal20")

Format

A data frame with 3 variables.

CAL.BP

a numeric vector correpondig to calendar years (in ky) befor present

X14C.age

a numeric vector correponding to 14C age

Error

a numeric vector correponding to error arround 14C age measurement
