Bayesian analysis of the uncertainty in the radiocarbon dating measurements

Author(s): Jaeyong Lee; Jangsuk Kim; Youngseon Lee

Year: 2015


The goal of the study is to investigate the uncertainty of radiocarbon dating measurements. To study the variability of the measurements, the samples from the same specimen were sent to different radiocarbon dating labs and the estimated dates from various labs were obtained as data for analysis. Through a Baeysian analysis of the data, we could estimate the variability of the labs as well as variability between labs.
