Pb 210 dating technique
It means that rain water accumulates in deep water-bearing strata (Nieć, 1997).
A peat core was taken from the S-E part of the fen, from a different place than previously investigated.
There are considerable variations in the concentrations of the tested metals – in many cases the concentration starts to rise at about 40 cm and may be connected with the human activity.
In this work, the results of radiocarbon dating are presented.
According to the model, we can estimate the age of the fen.
The paleobotanical anlysis was supplemented by 19 radiocarbon dates, however the resolution of the dating was low and the dated samples were mostly taken from the depth below 1 m (Latałowa and Nalepka, 1987). The fen is oblong, about 1000 m long and 500 m wide.
Trace elements have been introduced to the environment by the human activity since the very beginning of mining, coal combustion, smelting and metallurgy (Martínez Cortizas The fen in Wolbrom is located in the south of Poland, on the eastern part of Silesian-Cracovian Upland, in the Wolbrom Gate subregion (Kondracki, 2013). The climate is moderate, with mean annual temperature of . The average annual precipitation is about 700 mm (Kruczała, 2000).
