Welcome to NOSAMS

With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Ocean Sciences Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility (NOSAMS) was founded at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in 1989. NOSAMS strives to generate high accuracy, high precision radiocarbon data in a timely manner for seawater, groundwater, organic carbon, carbonates, sediments, individual compounds, and many other carbon-containing materials.
