Description of this data

Roberta Guerra, Francisco-Javier Santos Arévalo, Rafael García-Tenorio


A Carbonate Handling System (CHS from Ionplus AG) coupled with an automated graphitization system (AGE from Ionplus AG) has been tested to investigate the potential for running samples of foraminiferal carbonate for AMS 14C dating at the Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (CNA) in Seville.
The reproducibility of 14C ages for blanks and standard materials indicates that reliable 14C analyses are achievable for carbonate samples with a 14C age up to 50,000 yr BP.
14C and δ13C measurements of monospecific plankic foraminifera and bulk carbonate from sediment cores collected during the VECTOR oceanographic cruise (TRANSMED) in Western and Eastern Mediterranean Sea are presented.
Monospecific planktonic foraminifera younger than 1000 yr BP from the deep Mediterranean Sea were dated with a MIni CArbon DAting System (MICADAS) at the CNA.
