Abstract

The petrographic and morphologic differences between calcite precipitated below, at, or above the present water table and uranium-series dating were used to reconstruct a chronology of water-table fluctuation for the past 120 000 yr in Browns Room, a subterranean air-filled chamber of Devils Hole fissure adjacent to the discharge area of the large Ash Meadows groundwater flow system in southern Nevada. Although different in detail, water-level fluctuation recorded by Browns Room calcites generally correlate with other Great Basin proxy paleoclimatic data
