These options can be set under the [Options] menu item. The file handling should normally be fairly straight forward. Just select from the drop down list of commands and enter the parameters for which you are prompted. When you run an analysis you will be transferred over to the output viewer. Most of the changes are self explanatory but the main options are:.

Most of the changes are self explanatory but the main options are:. The main calibration data files are stored elsewhere and should be used for proper calibration - however other data sets may be used for comparison purposes to get alternative estimates of age.
There are four different viewing modes for the input files. By using these widths, it is possible to compare the tree rings in a dead tree to oxcap in a tree that is still growing in the same region.
It is available for online use or downloading. The file manager has a special section for prior and curve files on the right. You may often wish to save your files onto your local computer where they can be stored in the long term. If you press the button you can abandon the particular analysis and output all of the results so far calculated.
Oxcsl of radiocarbon determinations is in principle very simple. Full details are given in Radiocarbon Vol 55 4 IntCal13 special issue. To do this just click and drag anywhere in a plot and you can move the axes. Please see the installation instructions for further details.
This requires a computer since the calculations are more complicated. The program will automatically normalise the values.
Depending on the type of browser you have this should mean that changes to the plot do not rely on a fast access to the server. Note that some of these have different setup requirements. If the analysis is more complex and might take some time. The most complete set of file handling options are available using Firefox or other Mozilla browsers with native SVG support. Pressing [Alt] at the same time as dragging allows you to change the overall size of the plot zoom in and out.

Prior probability files have a simple format. The output window is therefore the first window to be presented to the oxcxl once you are logged onto the server. The is one plus the number of years from the start of AD1 or the end of 1BC. In most plot views an additional control is shown which allows you to navigate multiple plots.

The default view is a table which summarises the ranges of the output and in the case of Bayesian analysis some of the diagnostics. This ocxal is directly based on the proportion of radiocarbon found in the sample.
The information from measurements on tree rings and other samples of known age including speleothems, marine corals and samples from sedimentary records with independent dating are all compiled into calibration curves by the IntCal group. Since redrawing a plot can take a oscal seconds depending on the speed of your computer and the complexity of the plot in the latter two cases you need to press the reload button on the dialogue not in your browsers toolbar:.
The program will only run again if the input file is altered. Just select from the drop down list of commands and enter the parameters for which you are prompted.

There is also a discussion group for those interested in discussing use of the program, reporting bugs or suggesting improvements members can send mail to this group but not the announcement list:. Given the range of commands available in OxCal it is often easier oxczl use one of the tools to generate at least part of your model and then input the specific data afterwards or using the import dialogue.
If the MCMC analysis has difficulty starting any temporary error messages will appear in red at the bottom of this box.
You can return to the input by pressing the back button:. In some cases you may wish to paste the data from a spreadsheet. The top section allows the choice of the default calibration curve and the lower section allows you to specify a mixture between two curves for mixed oxcao dating.
By using dead trees of different but overlapping ages, you can build up odcal library of tree rings of different calendar ages.
