Abstract

The accuracy of Arctic lake chronologies has been assessed by measuring the C 14 activities of modern carbon sources and applying these isotopic mass balances to dating fossil lake materials. Radiocarbon measurements of components of the lacustrine carbon pool imply that the 1000 C 14 yr age of the sediment-water interface results from deposition of C 14-depleted organic matter derived from the watershed
