Computes the regional correction factor of 14C age offset in marinederived samples (Delta R). This is possible with the recently established "marine13" calibration curve and the 'BchronCalibrate' function from the 'Bchron' package. The algorithm of Delta R computation includes four steps: measure radiocarbon age of a marine sample; identify its true age; compute its modeled radiocarbon age corresponding to the true age; and finally calculate the difference between its measured and modeled radiocarbon ages. This package has functions that compute Delta R with three methods: by using marine samples with known collection dates (before 1950s), usually molluscan shells from museum collections, (function dr_shell()); by measuring other radioactive isotopes, mainly uraniumthorium (230Th/234U), ratio (dr_pair() function and the "pair" method in the dr_df() function); and finally by using a pair of coeval samples, one being marine and the other terrestrial (dr_pair() function and the "pair" method for the dr_df() function as well). Usually such samples originate from archaeological sites where the context, in which paired samples were found, is taken as a guarantee of their synchronicity.
