In radiocarbon dating

It is therefore possible to study the influence of the freshwater reservoir effect on radiocarbon dates in the Limfjord over long time scales.

In a sediment core from the Limfjord, northern Denmark, the impact of the freshwater reservoir effect on radiocarbon dating in an estuarine environment is examined.HCl-pretreatment was therefore not considered necessary. A modified Longin-procedure with ultrafiltration was used []) in two parallel boreholes at a water depth of 390 cm below present sea level (bpsl).The sediments consist of homogenous grey-brown marine clay gyttja.Mesolithic pottery, maybe the earliest in that region, was found at the sites Kayhude at the Alster and Schlamersdorf at the Trave. Today, after the construction of a dam, Kilen is a brackish embayment.As Kilen was naturally protected from strong currents, storms and wave action in the past, a continuous sediment sequence has been preserved.
