Radiocarbon42 2. Radiocarbon dating of ground water is used in combination with the primary measurements Radiocarbon dating has the potential of giving advance notice of. On objects as a conjunctive resource in humid environments.
Radiocarbon dating is based on measuring the loss of the parent radionuclide 14C in a given sample. The radioactive isotope of carbon, radiocarbon (14C), was first produced artificially in by Martin Kamen and Sam Ruben, who bombarded graphite in a.

Radiocarbon dating of groundwater is used in combination with the primary measurements of classical hydrological and chemical analyses. Radiocarbon dating will produce the best results when it involves multiple measurements or sequential sampling. The most useful data come from these comparisons and not from absolute ages.
An ANSTO-led study that examined the link between groundwater and surface food webs in the Great Artesian Basin has demonstrated for the first time that ancient carbon is incorporated in living aquatic species in these ecosystems in the semi-arid and arid regions of Australia.
