What are radiocarbon mentors?

Radiocarbon mentors are well-established scientists with a wealth of experience in the interpretation and publication of radiocarbon data. These scientists come from a variety of institutions around the United States, and specialize in a diverse array of radiocarbon applications. Radiocarbon mentors have agreed to consider entering into collaborations with scientists who are new to using radiocarbon data, thereby providing assistance with data processing and interpretation. Contact a mentor directly, or consult with a Radiocarbon Collaborator staff member (who also serve as mentors).
