Textbook Problem

Scientists studying an air-filled cavern located in an arid region determined that the speleothems present began forming 20,000 years ago and stopped growing 12,000 years ago. Suggest a reasonable history of climatic and hydrologic events that could have resulted in the observed cavern evidence.

To determine

The reasonable history of climatic and hydrological events that could have resulted in the observed cavern that is located in arid region and speleothems that began forming 20,000 years ago and stopped growing 12,000 years ago.

Explanation

The cavern history suggests that the speleothems started formed 20,000 years ago and stopped growing 12,000 years ago. The humid climates favor the formation of speleothems. At about 20,000 years ago, the water table would have fallen down because of moderate increase in temperature or decrease in precipitation...
