This resemblance is used in chemical and biological research, in a technique called carbon labeling: carbon-14 atoms can be used to replace nonradioactive carbon, in order to trace chemical and biochemical reactions involving carbon atoms from any given organic compound.

The impact of the radiocarbon dating technique on modern man has made it one of the most significant discoveries of the 20th century.Carbon dioxide also dissolves in water and thus permeates the oceans, but at a slower rate.has been estimated to be roughly 12 to 16 years in the northern hemisphere.The transfer between the ocean shallow layer and the large reservoir of bicarbonates in the ocean depths occurs at a limited rate.--or rather, its relative absence—is therefore used to determine the relative contribution (or mixing ratio) of fossil fuel oxidation to the total carbon dioxide in a given region of the Earth's atmosphere.Dating a specific sample of fossilized carbonaceous material is more complicated.
