IntCal13 and Marine13 Radiocarbon Age Calibration Curves 0–50,000 Years cal BP
The IntCal09 and Marine09 radiocarbon calibration curves have been revised utilizing newly available and updated data sets from 14C measurements on tree rings, plant macrofossils, speleothems,Expand
StalAge – An algorithm designed for construction of speleothem age models
Abstract Here we present a new algorithm ( StalAge ), which is designed to construct speleothem age models. The algorithm uses U-series ages and their corresponding age uncertainty for modelling andExpand
U-Series Dating of Paleolithic Art in 11 Caves in Spain
Dating of calcite crusts overlying art in Spanish caves shows that painting began more than 40,000 years ago, revealing either that cave art was a part of the cultural repertoire of the first anatomically modern humans in Europe or that perhaps Neandertals also engaged in painting caves. Expand
Very high-frequency and seasonal cave atmosphere PCO2 variability: Implications for stalagmite growth and oxygen isotope-based paleoclimate records
Abstract Cave air P CO 2 at two Irish sites varied dramatically on daily to seasonal timescales, potentially affecting the timing of calcite deposition and consequently climate proxy records derivedExpand
An Inter-Laboratory Assessment of the Thorium Isotopic Composition of Synthetic and Rock Reference Materials
We present a concerted international effort to cross-calibrate five synthetic Th isotope reference materials (UCSC Th “A”, OU Th “U”, WUN, IRMM-35 and IRMM-36), and six rock reference materials (UCSCExpand
Millennial-scale climate variability during the Last Interglacial recorded in a speleothem from south-western France
Abstract A stalagmite (BDinf) recovered from an archaeological cave (Bourgeois–Delaunay, La Chaise de Vouthon) in SW France provides a rare, high-resolution, precisely dated continental palaeoclimateExpand
Towards radiocarbon calibration beyond 28 ka using speleothems from the Bahamas
We present a new speleothem record of atmospheric Δ14C between 28 and 44 ka that offers considerable promise for resolving some of the uncertainty associated with existing radiocarbon calibrationExpand
Sea level change during MIS 5a based on submerged speleothems from the eastern Adriatic Sea (Croatia)
Abstract Two stalagmites were collected from below sea level in U Vode Pit on the Krk Island, eastern Adriatic Sea, at elevations of − 14.5 and − 18.8 m. They exhibit a growth history indicating aExpand
U-series dating and taphonomy of Quaternary vertebrates from Brazilian caves
Abstract The geochronology and taphonomy of internationally important fossil bearing cave deposits were studied, both in the semi-arid Northern Bahia area and the subtropical southeastern Lagoa SantaExpand
Millennial-scale climate variability during the last 12.5 ka recorded in a Caribbean speleothem
Abstract We present a speleothem stable oxygen isotope record for the last 12.5 ka based on two stalagmites from western Cuba. The δ18O signal is interpreted to represent past precipitationExpand
