Hi Coyote ...

Out of curiosity, could you give some examples using the 4 different calibration techniques you mention (measured age + Calib. 4.3; conventional age +Calib.5; c.a.+Calib. 6.; c.a.+Calib. 7) to compare the calibrated dates? Maybe give a couple different ranges of dates, say 2 kya, 6 kya, and 20 kya for example. I am just curious about how much these calibration curve updates have affected adjusted dates over the different revisions.

Maybe you could use some older data that you used one of the older systems on and then plug those numbers into the new system (?)


Whoever calls me ignorant shares my own opinion. Sorrowfully and tacitly I recognize my ignorance, when I consider how much I lack of what my mind in its craving for knowledge is sighing for. But until the end of the present exile has come and terminated this our imperfection by which "we know in part," I console myself with the consideration that this belongs to our common nature. - Francesco Petrarca

"Nothing is easier than to persuade people who want to be persuaded and already believe." - another Petrarca gem.
