14C in the Southern Indian OceanGeyh, M. A. (American Journal of Science, 1980-01-01)14C measurements were carried out on sea water samples collected in 1973, in the Indian ocean. The results obtained for 9 vertical profiles between 27 degrees S and 48 degrees S are presented. In surface water, the bomb 14C content is maximum at middle latitudes. A time lag relative to the north hemisphere bomb 14C delivery is apparent. In the more southern latitudes, 14C content remains very low.
Holocene Sea-Level History: Case Study of the Statistical Evaluation of 14C DatesGeyh, M. A. (American Journal of Science, 1980-01-01)The limits of the statistical evaluation of 14C dates by histograms are discussed. The method of the attempt to establish a global chronology of the shortterm eustatic sea-level changes during the Holocene is examined as well as its correlation with the precisely determined Suess wiggles.
