Present testing shows the amount of C-14 in the atmosphere has been increasing since it was first measured in the 1950's. This may be tied in to the declining strength of the magnetic field. "-Hovind


the increase is caused by above-ground nuclear test between 1955 and 1963 which unloads masses of c14 into atmosphere.
however c14 level has been dropping steadily after 1963 partial test ban treaty :roll:
