The Climate of the Last 150,000 Years Recorded Inspeleothems: Preliminary Results from North-Western Romania

Document Type


Publication Date



Seventy-four 230Th/234U dates on speleothems enable preliminary estimates to be made of the palaeoclimatic evolution of the north-western part of Romania. The growth frequency of speleothems was examined using the cumulative distributed error frequency method (Gordon, 1989). The climatic oscillations that are suggested by our curve correlate tentatively with known climatic events provided by pollen analysis, coral growth frequency and oxygen isotope records from both deep sea sediments and ice cores during the same timespan (the last 150,000 years).
