# How many $\ce{^{14}C}$ measurements have been made?

I know that the upper limit of radiocarbon dating is typically about 60,000 years, but how many radiocarbon dates have actually been measured? As of October 2015, how many $^{14}\ce C$ (radiocarbon) measurements have been made worldwide, how many have been calibrated by historic dates, and what proportion of measurements have yielded inconsistent results?

• You get 360000 results using "carbon 14 dating" on Google Scholar. Definitely more than "few". Oct 29 '15 at 6:01

• @userLTK - The half-life of carbon 14 is 5730 years, not 57,000 years. 57000 years is almost ten half-lives, so about 0.1% of the original C14 atoms are left after 57000 years. Oct 29 '15 at 16:05
• @DavidHammen, oops. You're right. Should I delete? Oct 29 '15 at 20:25
• @DikranMarsupial Young Earth proponents claim a 6000ya Earth, so radiocarbon dating is relevant too. Oct 30 '15 at 15:59
