Extract

The following list contains measurements made during the period 1972-5 which have not been previously published and which form part of a research project on marine shell dating (Gillespie, 1975). These sets of samples were measured to determine 1) “apparent age” of marine shells coll alive from Australian coastal waters before the advent of large-scale nuclear weapons testing, 2) the possibility of using post 1950 Australian marine shells as a modern reference, 3) “apparent age” of Australian marine shells in the past as shown by comparisons between stratigraphically equivalent charcoal and marine shell samples.
