NOSAMS Newsletter- 2016

Dear Friends of NOSAMS,

-I am writing to let you know that we have not raised our rates for 2016, which means that our sample fees have remained constant for the last three years.  In addition, our turnaround-time is presently below one month, an all-time low, so this is an excellent time to submit your 14C samples.

The NOSAMS website has details of services we provide (, and the attached one-page brochure provides details as well.  We enjoyed seeing many of you who visited our exhibitor booth at the 2015 AGU Fall meeting.  We got great feedback and, for those who did not attend, please feel free to contact us with any of your sample processing needs.  Also, let us know if you have any feedback regarding the services we provide and anything else that will improve NOSAMS’ service to the community.

NOSAMS will once again offer two graduate internships this year, so if you know of a worthy graduate student project be sure to point them to NOSAMS; the deadline for applications is June 1, 2016.  An internship can include free 14C analyses and an opportunity to visit NOSAMS and learn about radiocarbon AMS first-hand.  Also, there are plans to have a workshop on Ramped Pyrolysis for radiocarbon measurements here in Woods Hole, tentatively scheduled for September 2016 (contact: Ann McNichol,

Finally, let me state what an honor it is to be part of the fantastic NOSAMS team.  I look forward to working with you and welcome the opportunity to help with your radiocarbon needs.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me or anyone else here at NOSAMS.

Best regards,

Mark Kurz for NOSAMS
