Abstract: Radiocarbon or 14C is one of the most important cosmogenic radionuclides for building reliable chronologies for various materials and archives for the study of environmental and climatic changes for the past 50 ka. Radiocarbon is also used as a powerful tracer of the carbon cycle and climatic systems. After a short discussion on recent advances in accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) 14C analysis, this paper highlights several applications of radiocarbon in earth and environmental sciences that have been carried out at ANSTO.
