1962 Radiocarbon: An International Journal of Cosmogenic Isotope Research  
The measurements reported in this list have been made since the Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory at the Institute of Geophysics, UCLA became operational in August 1961. CO2proportional counting was used for all measurements in an 7 · 5-L counter at 1 atm pressure. Dates have been calculated on the basis of the C14half life of 5568 ± 30 yr, and 95% of NBS oxalic acid as modern standard. It is planned to discuss the half life in the light of the newer measurements at a conference in 1962. Prior to
