• Bomb-Produced Carbon-14 in the Surface Water of the Pacific Ocean

      Linick, T. W. (American Journal of Science, 1980-01-01)
      The distribution of 14C concentrations in the dissolved inorganic carbon in the surface waters of the Pacific Ocean is shown to have a primarily latitudinal pattern with Delta-14C maxima at mid-latitudes in both hemispheres and a minimum at the equator. Oceanographic causes of this phenomenon are discussed.
