IAE on Carbon Isotopes
and on Carbon-14 Dating



Review the WebElements and learn that there are more isotopes of carbon than just the ones with mass 12, 13 and 14. View both the entries to "Naturally Occuring Isotopes" and to "Radioactive Isotopes".



Read the entry on Radicarbon Dating in Compton's Encyclopedia. Not that this site offers interesting links including one to Willard Frank Libby.



For a detailed look at Radiocarbon Dating check out the site on Dating Techniques. Try out the Carbon-14 Dating Calculator.
