Abstract

The AA. present evidence that for at least the past 30,000 to 450,000 yr, the oxygen isotopic compositions of the fossil waters currently residing in the Nubian aquifer, together with those of carbonates deposited from these waters, are consistent with precipitation from paleowesterly winds
