Speleothem trace element ratios such as Mg/Ca and Sr/Ca are increasingly used in speleothem paleoclimatology as a supplement to stable oxygen and carbon isotope ratios as proxies for past variability in the hydrologic system. Using multiple proxies together allows for a better understanding of both the local and distal hydrologic changes recorded in speleothem chemistry, and therefore of changes in past rainfall. Despite the potential benefits, trace element analysis of speleothems has yet to...[Show more]
