Pre-bomb marine reservoir variability in the Kimberley region, Western Australia

O'Connor, Sue; Ulm, Sean; Fallon, Stewart J; Barham, Anthony; Loch, Ian


New ΔR values are presented for 10 known-age shells from the Kimberley region of northwest Australia. Previous estimates of ΔR for the Kimberley region are based on only 6 individual shell specimens with dates of live collection known only to within 50 yr (Bowman 1985a). Here, we describe the results of our recent attempts to constrain ΔR variability for this region by dating a suite of known-age pre-AD 1950 shell samples from the Australian Museum and Museum Victoria. A regional ΔR of 58 ± 17...[Show more]
