Speleothems are valuable archives of climate change because of their extraordinary time resolution, which is unattainable in other terrestrial climate proxies. Analyses of 4796 ultraviolet fluorescent (UVf) layers observed in polished thin sections of a 15-cm-long speleothem collected from Raccoon Mountain Cave near Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA, as well as 200 δ13C and δ18O measurements and 11 high-precision U/Th dates permit refined interpretations of middle and late Holocene paleoclimate records in the southeastern United States. Speleothem UVf layers average 0.015 mm, identical to the average growth rate determined for the middle and late Holocene portions of the...
