Stratigraphy,U-Th chronology, and paleoenvironments at Gladysvale Cave: insights into the climatic control of South African hominin-bearing cave deposits

Pickering, Robyn; Hancox, Phillip J; Lee-Thorp, Julia; Grun, Rainer; Mortimer, Graham; McCulloch, Malcolm; Berger, Lee R

Description

Gladysvale Cave is one of the few Plio-Pleistocene hominin-bearing cave sites in South Africa that contains a well-stratified cave fill with clastic sediments interspersed with flowstones. The clastic sediments can be divided into units based on the presence of intercalated flowstones, forming flowstone bounded units (FBU). Ten MC-ICP-MS uranium-series dates on several flowstone horizons in the Gladysvale Internal Deposit fan indicate deposition from the late mid-Pleistocene (∼570 ka) to...[Show more]
