University of Utah geochemists developed a new way to fight poaching of elephants, hippos, rhinos and other animals.
Carbon-14 from 1950s and 1960s nuclear weapons tests was and still is deposited in animals' tusks or teeth, and those carbon-14 levels reveal the year an animal died, and thus whether the ivory was taken before or after international bans on ivory trading. University of Utah researchers developed a new weapon to fight poachers who kill elephants, hippos, rhinos and other wildlife.
The ODA provides general information on common enquiries users have about dating services but will not deal directly with individual complaints which are properly the responsibility of member companies.
Ivory Towers is a founding member of the Online Dating Association (ODA) which was set up to ensure high standards of behaviour by dating service providers serving the UK.
The method uses the "bomb curve," which is a graph – shaped roughly like an inverted "V" – showing changes in carbon-14 levels in the atmosphere – and thus absorbed by plants and animals in the food chain. Those levels peaked in the 1960s and have declined ever since but still are absorbed by and measurable in plant and animal tissues.
The study was funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Geographic Society and the University of Utah.
Ivory Trade Drives Elephant Slaughter International agreements banned most trade of raw ivory from Asian elephants after 1975 and African elephants after 1989.
In the United States, raw and worked African ivory (jewelry, figurines, gun and knife handles) is legal if it was imported before 1989 or, if worked ivory is imported after, it must be at least 100 years old.
