    MOBI Hot Carbon MOBI ↠ ä amateur sleuth.co ä carbon kindle, Hot Carbon eBook Hot Carbon sounded to be another hit for me Unfortunately it wasn’tThe facts presented are very interesting; I didn’t know much about Carbon 14 other than its use for age dating so I learned uite a few new things However all those presented are before the ‘90s For a book writtenpublished in 2019 especially a scientific one that’s a big minus in my opinionThe history of its discovery the way it’s found in nature and its applications are uite engaging For all that the way the story was told is another matter There are too many details not related to it not so interesting from my PoV and too few experiments And those which are presented are so stretched out that you forget what the experiment was about in the first p

    MOBI Hot Carbon MOBI ↠ ä amateur sleuth.co ä carbon kindle, Hot Carbon eBookThis is a book for those with a background in math and chemistry maybe general sciences would work as well As a humanities major myself I had some serious eye glazing during the parts of the chemistry and math I enjoy popular science books or at least ones where the specifics are toned down I had hoped for a general history of Carbon 14 but it was detailed than I expected Sure details are good but not when you don't know higher math I should note that in the portions I read first few chapters the math wasn't extensive The drawings and figures in the book helped immensely Still I put aside the book as it was too much of a slog for myself and realizing it's holding up other books I might enjoy The list is too long I am not rating the book as it's a partial read for myselfI can see other

    MOBI Hot Carbon MOBI ↠ ä amateur sleuth.co ä carbon kindle, Hot Carbon eBookThis book was very interesting I had always wondered how carbon 14 helped scientists date relics The author goes through the details behind that bringing up uniue carbon 14 signatures associated with development and testing of the atomic bomb and changes in ocean currents It is amazing how so much of the natural world ties to this topic Some of the detailed discussion in the middle to later chapters was beyond me but the author always brought it back around to the main conclusions so I could skip those parts and still learn an awful lot I really appreciate the insight I got from this book Recommended readingI got a copy of this book for free to read and review All opinions above are my own

    MOBI Hot Carbon MOBI ↠ ä amateur sleuth.co ä carbon kindle, Hot Carbon eBookNote I received a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley 35 starsIn Hot Carbon John F Marra explores the history of carbon 14 the mechanics of its origin the circumstances of its discovery and the wide field of application in various scientific disciplines Other than the very obvious carbon dating in archaeology he describes carbon 14 techniues in climatology and oceanography in a very detailed manner Overall it's a very interesting book even though some bits of information are repeated several times and the writing is sometimes a bit long winded The highlights for me were his own stories about oceanography and the description of his group's experiments
