State-of-the-art radiocarbon measurements to study Earth's carbon cycle

The development of high-precision, rapid through-put radiocarbon dating for small samples via a compact accelerator mass spectrometer — the MIni CArbon DAting System (MICADAS) — has opened a wide variety of new possibilities for next generation radiocarbon studies. This talk will explain the basics of the instrumentation (which will be installed in the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research in 2024) and explore a variety of examples of the ways in which it can be used to explore the carbon cycle and beyond.
