History[ edit ] The Greek botanist Theophrastus c. In , the German-American Jacob Kuechler — used crossdating to examine oaks Quercus stellata in order to study the record of climate in western Texas. Kapteyn — was using crossdating to reconstruct the climates of the Netherlands and Germany. Douglass sought to better understand cycles of sunspot activity and reasoned that changes in solar activity would affect climate patterns on earth, which would subsequently be recorded by tree-ring growth patterns i.

Share on Facebook Jon Bon Jovi and his namesake band could seemingly do no wrong in the late '80s. Still, it is fairly safe to say that the frontman broke many hearts when he married his high-school girlfriend Dorothea Hurley on April 29, Hurley was, at least initially, going out with a friend of Bon Jovi's — but they shared a history class. Things weren't always easy.

Measurement of N, the number of 14 C atoms currently in the sample, allows the calculation of t, the age of the sample, using the equation above. The above calculations make several assumptions, such as that the level of 14 C in the atmosphere has remained constant over time. The calculations involve several steps and include an intermediate value called the "radiocarbon age", which is the age in "radiocarbon years" of the sample: Radiocarbon ages are still calculated using this half-life, and are known as "Conventional Radiocarbon Age". Since the calibration curve IntCal also reports past atmospheric 14 C concentration using this conventional age, any conventional ages calibrated against the IntCal curve will produce a correct calibrated age.
