  • Wellington atmospheric 14CO2

    GNS Science
    We present 60 years of Δ14CO2 measurements from Wellington, New Zealand (41°S, 175°E). The record has been extended and fully revised. New measurements have been used to evaluate the existing record and to replace original measurements where warranted. This is the earliest atmospheric Δ14CO2 record and records the rise of the 14C “bomb spike”, the...
