Speleothem U-series dating of semi-synchronous climate oscillations during the last deglaciation

Zhao, Jian-xin; Wang, Yong-jin; Collerson, Kenneth; Gagan, Michael


Evidence for nearly synchronous climate oscillations during the last deglaciation has been found throughout the Northern Hemisphere but few records are based on independent time scales of calendar years. We present a rare uranium-series dated oxygen-carbon isotope record for a speleothem from Tangshan Cave, China, which demonstrates that abrupt deglacial climatic oscillations from 16 800 to 10 500 yr BP are semi-synchronous with those found in Greenland ice core records. Relatively rapid shifts...[Show more]
