Fossil dating lab age chinese dating difference
Beta Analytic has set a real and conservative limit of greater than 43500 BP when the activity of the material is statistically the same as the background.
This is a credible number based on the lab’s own internal AMS limits.
In the past, Beta Analytic has sent graphite splits of the same exact graphite produced from Miocene-aged coal to as many as seven different AMS labs and obtained finite quotes of ages between 42000 to 53000.
Our understanding of the shape and pattern of the history of life depends on the accuracy of fossils and dating methods.
