An estimate of the production rate of 14CO due to natural cosmic ray background
Entry ID: K087_1994_1995_NZ_1

Abstract: 14CO measurements in cylinders exposed in Antarctica were used to estimate the production rate of 14CO due to natural cosmic ray background with comparisons with similar exposures in the Southern Alps of New Zealand and in the USA.
