Can speleothems assist in unravelling the paleoclimatic history of coastal British Columbia?
MetadataShow full item record
Paleoclimate reconstruction is an important tool used by climate scientists in order to understand and predict past, modern and future climate-related issues. Proxies, such as speleothems, can help us to form these climate reconstructions using Uranium-series dating in conjunction with oxygen isotope ratios. Three coastal BC caves have been used in regional paleoclimate reconstructions and will be analyzed in comparison to each other and other proxy data to determine their validity in unravelling the paleoclimatic history of coastal British Columbia.
