In the last 50 years, the 1 x 0 / 1 6 ~ signature of meteoric water (in the following, " ' o , , ,~ ) has become a key tracer intensively used both in hydrology and in ~alacocliinatology. In palaeoclimatology, the origii~al atmospheric signal, i.e. I S is reconstructed by means of a variety of palaeo-archives such as ice cores, c s t r i e sediments, tree ring cellulose or speleothems. I11 both research fields, the understanding of the original isotope signal, before entering a hydrologic… CONTINUE READING
