Abstract:
Measurements of carbon isotope (δ¹³C) ratios are essential for (paleo)environmental studies, such as those regarding the carbon cycle, past food consumption by pre-historic societies, paleo-vegetation reconstructions, soil dynamics, aspects regarding animal migration and food consumption, etc. Our main goal with this study is to introduce new cave records to the speleothem community and contextualize their interpretation in a regional framework for South America during the last two millennia. The dataset presented (named δ¹³C_2k_SA) comprises thirteen new δ¹³C speleothem records that were integrated to other 12 records already published to test the influence of local hydroclimate, altitude, temperature and changing vegetation types on δ¹³C values in stalagmites.
