Miami-based carbon dating lab Beta Analytic is inviting participants of the 2018 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting to visit Booth #1305. Beta Analytic associates Tamara Armstrong, Troy Day and Haley Gershon are available for consultation throughout the five-day event slated to begin on December 10, 2018. This year’s meeting will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
Beta Analytic has supported the AGU over the years by joining its meeting as an exhibitor. Aside from carbon dating, the ISO 17025-accredited lab is also promoting its stable isotopes analysis services and “nitrate source tracking” – measuring the nitrogen and oxygen stable isotopes in dissolved nitrates. Standard turnaround time for the lab’s services is 14 business days. Faster services are also available for its accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) dating services.
The AGU is launching its Centennial year at the fall meeting with special events, sessions, and engagement opportunities for all attendees. There will also be symposia, workshops, tutorials, field trips, networking events, town halls and a Night at the Museums for attendees and their families. Keynote speakers include Apple’s Vice President for Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives Lisa Jackson, Amazon’s Head of Worldwide Sustainability Kara Hurst, and United States Geological Survey Director Dr. Jim Reilly, among others.
The AGU Fall Meeting is one of the biggest conferences focused on geophysical sciences. More than 24,000 participants from 113 countries are expected to join the fall meeting to discuss and learn about the latest trends and scientific breakthroughs.
The next AGU fall meeting will be held in San Francisco, California, from December 9-13, 2019.
Based in Washington, D.C., AGU is a nonprofit scientific association with more than 60,000 members working on various topics covering the earth and space sciences. The AGU publishes scientific journals, sponsors meetings, and supports education programs, among others, in an effort to disseminate knowledge on the geophysical sciences.
Using AMS technology, Beta Analytic provides accurate and precise carbon dating with a standard turnaround time of 14 business days. The lab offers faster services — priority (results reported in 6 business days or less) and time-guide (results are reported in 2-3 business days). The time-guide service is applicable to most materials except bones.
Aside from carbon-14 dating, the lab also provides stable isotope analysis of various materials including carbonates, non-cremated bones and water. For materials that do not need pretreatment, results are reported in 7 business days. For materials that need pretreatment like bones, the standard turnaround time is 14 business days.
For price list requests and other cost-related inquiries, please contact the lab using this contact form.
When requesting for an estimate or formal quotation, please indicate the currency, analysis required (radiocarbon dating or stable isotope analysis), the number of samples, material type (e.g. bones, charcoal, sediments) and billing address. For AMS dating services quotations, please also include the turnaround time (standard, priority or time-guide).
