Brief Description Radiocarbon was injected into the atmosphere from atmospheric detonations of nuclear weapons between 1945 and 1980, which leads to increases in the concentration of carbon-14 in the atmosphere mostly
in the late 1950's and early 1960's. 27 consecutive single tree rings sampled from Armidale, northern New South Wales from a Pinus radiata tree were analyzed for radiocarbon starting from AD 1952.
