Abstract

The submerged forests along the west coast of England and Wales provide a unique source of wood for radiocarbon/dendrochronological studies. We report C age determinations on sequential growth increments from three "floating" chronologies. A sampling frequency of 10 samples per century was used. Fluctuations in atmospheric C levels of 2-3% over several decades can occur, these variations being superimposed on a smoothly changing trend.
