The testing of thermonuclear weapons produced an increase in atmospheric C they contain is infinitesimal.This book gives an insight of archeological perspective on 14C dating.The following article is primarily based on a discussion of radiocarbon dating found in The Biblical Chronologist Volume 5, Number 1. Radiocarbon dating is based on a few relatively simple principles. The vast majority of these are C (pronounced "c twelve"), the stable isotope of carbon.This represents the ideal date for the amount of 14C measured for the sample.However, as the quantity of 14 absorbed by all life fluctuates from year to year, the figure must be calibrated based on known fluctuation.
