Comparing (super 14) C histograms; an approach based on approximate randomization techniques.

Tom Dye

An approximate randomization technique for comparing (super 14) C histograms is described and illustrated with an example from Hawaii. The technique determines intervals of significant difference in the histograms, rather than providing a single number summary.
