Abstract

Speleothem Delta 18 O and Delta 13 C signals have already proven to enable climate reconstructions at high resolution. However, seasonally resolved speleothem records are still scarce and often difficult to interpret in terms of climate due to the multitude of factors that can affect the proxy signals. In this paper, a fast growing (up to 2 mm yr? 1) seasonally laminated speleothem from the Han-sur-Lesse cave (Belgium) is analyzed for its delta 18 O andDelta 13 C values, layer thickness and changes in calcite fabric.
