Abstract

Following recommendations of the Glasgow International Workshop on Intercomparison of Radiocarbon Laboratories (Scott, Long & Kra 1990), a further international intercomparison is planned. This new intercomparison is complementary to the existing IAEA intercalibration, and will make use of natural samples whose ages will be unknown to the participants. The study has been funded by the UK Research Councils (SERC and NERC), and samples will be free to all participants. We anticipate that this intercomparison will be ongoing, with distribution of samples in 1992, and presentation of the results at a later meeting. We present here details of the samples available and the time scale of the study. Briefly, we envisage that the new study will be more focused than the ICS (Scott et al. 1986), and will include natural samples in both pretreated and unpretreated forms.
