Radiocarbon dating volcanic ash
Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built.For some time it has been established that there is a very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction.We introduce here a remarkable theory of terrestrial catastrophism that seems to be supported by evidence that is equally remarkable.One of the authors of this theory (RBF) is identified as a nuclear scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley Nuclear Laboratory. The authors' credentials seem so good that we must take a close look at their extraordinary claims concerning a natural phenomenon that they believe reset radiocarbon clocks in north-central North America and - potentially - elsewhere on the planet.These neutrons necessarily transmuted residual nitrogen (^ N) in the dated charcoals to radiocarbon, thus explaining anomalous dates.
A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur.
As it is, our selections have to be based on what meagre information is available and educated guesswork as to what the full story might or could be.
In our choice of number five, this is highlighted as we cannot even identify a single volcanic system as the main threat, but then the area occupied by the cities Mexico City, Toluca and Puebla is highly unusual.
These skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on par with those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
At one site, Soviet scholars found a skeleton which had a radioactive level 50 times greater than normal.
