Abstract

New results of radiocarbon concentration in tree rings from the Kraków region covering a growth period of 20 yr have been analyzed, and the relationship between them and 14C concentrations in the atmospheric CO2 are described. This enabled assessment of the uptake period for pine trees at the regional climatic conditions. Both sets of data show lower 14C concentrations than reported for “clean air” at the reference station, indicating a remarkable input of “dead” CO2 of fossil fuel origin. Using data of carbon dioxide and 14C concentrations from Schauinsland, summer values of the fossil component (Cf) in carbon dioxide were calculated for the Kraków area. Fitting exponential and linear functions to experimental data, the exchange time was calculated, and expected future 14C concentration in the atmosphere was estimated.
