Abstract:

14CO2 observations at Jungfraujoch high altitude research station in the Swiss Alps (3450m a.s.l.) and at Schauinsland observatory (1205 m a.s.l.) in the German Black Forest are conducted to monitor the background 14CO2 level over Europe and define the reference for regional estimates of fossil fuel CO2. The record is also used for post-bomb dating of organic material (e.g. forensic studies).
