14C age-modelling

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Age-depth models are important methods for placing core-based proxy data on a time scale. A range of different approaches has been developed over the past decades, and Bayesian approaches have become especially popular. The different types of age-models are discussed, including their assumptions, how the models treat dated levels as well as undated levels, and how estimates of chronological uncertainty are produced. Many age-depth models were developed for users of radiocarbon dating, but with some adaptations they can also be applied to cores dated with other dating techniques such as 210Pb or OSL.
