Implication for U-series dating

High-resolution mapping of uranium and other trace elements in recrystallized aragonite–calcite speleothems from caves in the Pyrenees (France): Implication for U-series dating

R. Ortega, R. Maire, G. Devès & Y Quinif

Aragonite and calcite speleothems were sampled in the cave of Pierre Saint-Martin (Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France). These speleothems contain significant amounts of uranium and strontium, which were measured spatially and chemically by nuclear microprobe analysis. (...)
