The above-ground nuclear tests that occurred in several countries between and see nuclear test list dramatically increased the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and subsequently in the biosphere; after the tests ended, the atmospheric concentration of the isotope began to decrease. All Rights Reserved Terms and Conditions. In any living organism, the relative concentration of carbon — 14 is the same as it is in the atmosphere because of the interchange of this isotope between the organism and the air.

Libby received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in Factories put out massive amounts of Carbon, and during that time the concentration of Carbon in the atmosphere increased significantly. The point where this horizontal line intersects the curve will give the calendar age of the sample on the horizontal axis.
