This bombardment causes a nuclear reaction to take place.

These factors combine to cause fluctuations in the Carbon-12/Carbon-14 ratios found in plant, animal and human materials.

on July 16, 1945, and the subsequent above ground testing between 19, caused a rise in neutrons which in turn increased Carbon-14 concentrations around the world.

In a similar way, solar cosmic radiation fluctuates and would cause a fluctuation in the amount Carbon-14 being produced at any one an ongoing process.

They all start with similar flaws, but Carbon-14 has more than the rest.
