Radiocarbon ages of individual fatty acids from Ross Sea sediments
Entry ID: Ross_Sea_seds_14C_fatty_acids

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The researchers have measured the radiocarbon contents of individual
solvent-extractable short-chain (C14, C16, and C18) fatty acids
isolated from Ross Sea surface sediments. The corresponding 14C ages
are equivalent to that of the post-bomb DIC reservoir. Moreover,
molecular 14C variations in surfacial (upper 15cm) sediments indicate
that these compounds may prove ... View entire text
