Paleoclimate reconstruction based on the timing of speleothem growth and oxygen and carbon isotope composition in a cave located in the rain shadow in Israel

Abstract:

High-resolution 230Th/234U ages and δ18O and δ13C compositions of speleothems in Ma'ale Efrayim Cave located to the east of the central mountain ridge of Israel enable us to examine the nature of the rain shadow aridity during glacial and interglacial intervals. Speleothem growth occurred during marine glacial isotopic periods, with no growth during the two last marine isotope interglacial intervals. and during the peak of the Last Glacial Maximum. This contrasts with speleothem growth in cav...
