Every week, one of the titles is half price when you buy The Telegraph at WHSmith High Street stores or with the voucher in paper.
Archaeologists have long used carbon-14 dating (also known as radiocarbon dating) to estimate the age of certain objects.
Forensic anthropologists at The University of Arizona took advantage of this fact in a recent study funded by NIJ.
Traditional radiocarbon dating is applied to organic remains between 500 and 50,000 years old and exploits the fact that trace amounts of radioactive carbon are found in the natural environment.
Now, new applications for the technique are emerging in forensics, thanks to research funded by NIJ and other organizations.
Since then they have been dropping back toward natural levels.
In recent years, forensic scientists have started to apply carbon-14 dating to cases in which law enforcement agencies hope to find out the age of a skeleton or other unidentified human remains.The new method is based on the fact that over the past 60 years, environmental levels of radiocarbon have been significantly perturbed by mid-20th-century episodes of above-ground nuclear weapons testing.

Founded in 2002 by Nobel Laureate Carl Wieman, the Ph ET Interactive Simulations project at the University of Colorado Boulder creates free interactive math and science simulations.
Before the nuclear age, the amount of radiocarbon in the environment varied little in the span of a century.
In contrast, from 1955 to 1963, atmospheric radiocarbon levels almost doubled.
