Jeebuz, This is Big: Calendrically Correlated 14C Record Back to 53,000 B.P.

I've said this a few times, I know. But this CHANGES EVERYTHING!
From PastHorizons comes word of just published research from Japan where a mountain lake has a sedimentary record that records individual years going back 53,000 years. It's been counted and correlated with over 800 14C dates on embedded organic material.
     I know I'm not a physicist. But surely this is an eminently reproduceable outcome, and will stand or fall on its own merits. What a gold mine!
