The 14C bomb-pulse signature has been measured by AMS on cross-dateable teak samples from N- and S-hemisphere locations in the tropics. Excellent agreement is found with the atmospheric 14C content in the period 1955 to 1980 for the respective hemispheres. These results demonstrate that 14C measurements can be used to facilitate growth rate determinations in tropical trees. © 1997 Elsevier B.V.
