Carbon 14 dating dinosaur bones Ruletchat
This was a joint event of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS).It appears that the researchers approached the matter with considerable professionalism, including taking great pains to eliminate contamination with modern carbon as a source of the C signal in the bones.The lead presenter was Dr Thomas Seiler, a German physicist whose Ph D is from the Technical University of Munich.The video of his presentation was up on You Tube at the time of writing this report.But going to the official conference site, the talk has clearly been removed.(Go to Wednesday, room Leo 2, double-click on BGO2, which is the session that had the presentation.(3) Among many discoveries by the Horner team was the research of Mary Schweitzer and her assistants who observed soft tissue in a T-Rex femur bone after EDTA treatment. Such data needs to be cross checked by main stream science and not swept under the rug.Thus we have repeatedly urged them to C-14 date the fossils in letters to Jack Horner and University paleontologists and in six conference abstracts.
Joe is a field paleontologist and specialist in reconstruction, molding and casting of fossils from the Le Brae Tarpits of LA to director of his own museum in Texas - Mt Blanco Fossil Museum.Unwilling to challenge the data openly, they erased the report from public view without a word to the authors or even to the AOGS officers, until after an investigation.It won’t be restored.” Indeed, one can go online to see a screen shot of the original program.I am a consulting field and lab chemist with several decades of lab and field research. Regarding a request for a technical paper on this blog here is what can be considered the major peer reviewed one, in Italy from 2009 and so published in Italy and Germany along with other conference papers 2009 at a conference held at the National Research Council of Italy with coauthors in nuclear and geophysics.I learned the basics during 18 years with Battelle Mem. When a conference abstract or paper does manage to slip through main stream science filters, damage control sets in as was done by the AOGS in Singapore.
There are plenty of dinosaur bones out there that could be tested for C-14—one would hope that other researchers will take up the challenge and perform similar analyses to these researchers.
