The barrel represents the earth's atmosphere in which the carbon-14 accumulates.

The water leaking out the sides of the barrel represents the loss (mainly by radioactive decay) of the atmosphere's supply of carbon-14.

That is, we can use carbon-14 dating on a given tree-ring (the 8000-year sequence having been assembled from the overlapping tree-ring patterns of living and dead trees) and compare the resulting age with the tree-ring date.

The curve is roughly 180 degrees out of phase with the C-14 curve.

(Strahler, 1987, p.156) The idea [that the fluctuating magnetic field affects influx of cosmic rays, which in turn affects C-14 formation rates] has been taken up by the Czech geophysicist, V.

We stick the garden hose in and turn it on full blast.

The water coming out of the hose is analogous to the continuous production of carbon-14 atoms in the upper atmosphere.

To that end, he quoted some authorities, including Richard Lingenfelter.
