The goal of 14Constraint is to enhance the availability and use of radiocarbon data as constraints for process-based understanding of the age distribution of carbon in and respired by soils and ecosystems. A team of researchers who is envisioned who will 

  1.  work collaboratively with others on building an open community database of 14C data
  2.  fill gaps in data and understanding by making new radiocarbon measurements in soil and respired CO2
  3.  use models to interpret data for improving models of soil C cycling and
  4.  produce global data products for comparison with models.
