Abstract

Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) measurements of environmental 14C have been employed during the past decade at the several micromole level (10's of ug carbon), but advanced research in the atmospheric and marine sciences demands still higher sensitivity for modern carbon, approaching ug amounts or less, an extreme example being the determination of 14C in elemental or
