A stronger field would tend to shield the planet from particles from the Sun, diverting them before they could reach the atmosphere to create carbon Another possibility was that the cause lay in the Sun itself.
InMinze Stuiver suggested that longer-term solar variations might account for the inconsistent carbon dates. The curve of carbon production showed undeniable variations, "wiggles" of a few percent on a timescale of a century or so.
Tracking carbon also proved highly useful in historical and contemporary studies of the global carbon budget, including the movement of carbon in the oceans and its complex travels within living ecosystems.
