Speleothems are popular terrestrial palaeoclimate archives that often yield records of exceptional resolution and chronological control. Radiocarbon is becoming an increasingly popular tool for speleothem research, as it can yield insights into past hydrological and ecosystem processes. Franziska Lechleitner, from the Laboratory for the Analysis of Radiocarbon with AMS (LARA) at the University of Bern, will explore how this tool can be used to explore such different research questions, and provide an outlook to exciting future possibilities arising with continuing analytical and methodological developments.
