The most conventional method for dating the organic fraction in lake sediments 50,000 years back in time is radiocarbon (14C), which relies on a progressive isotopic decay with time. The intensive use of 14C dating since its introduction in the 1950s has led to a comprehensive understanding of the limits and potentials of this method, such as temporal or spatial variations in past 14C levels and contamination of samples. To correct for temporal variations, 14C dates are calibrated against internationally established calibration curves; to avoid spatial variations and contamination, only carefully selected terrestrial plant material is used for dating.
