Hogg, Alan G; Fifield, L Keith; Turney, Christian; Palmer, Jonathan G; Galbraith, Rex; Baillie, Mike G K


It is critical that a comprehensive terrestrial radiocarbon (14C) calibration curve is developed beyond 26 ka for high-precision calibration and correlation of climatic, environmental and archaeological records. Abundant sub-fossil New Zealand kauri (Agathis australis) wood, preserved in Oxygen Isotope Stage-2 and 3 peat swamps, provides an important resource for 14C calibration; nowhere else in the world does such an extensive collection of ancient wood exist. Although finite 14C ages beyond...[Show more]
