Biomass effects on stalagmite growth and isotope ratios: A 20th century analogue from Wiltshire, England

Abstract

Increases in calcite deposition rates combined with decreases in yC and yO in three modern stalagmites from Brown’s Folly Mine, Wiltshire, England, are correlative with a well-documented re-vegetation above the mine. Increased soil PCO2 resulted in greater amounts of dissolved CaCO3 in the drip waters, which consequently increased annual calcite deposition… (More)
