Summary
Abstract: Mass spectrometric uranium-series dating and C-O isotopic analysis of a
stalagmite from Lynds Cave, northern Tasmania, Australia provide a high-
resolution record of regional climate change between 5100 and 9200 yr before
present (BP). Combined d18O, d13C, growth rate, initial 234U/238U and physical
property (color, transparency and porosity) records allow recognition of seven
climatic stages: ... View entire text
