Cave calcites from Oregan Caves National Monument (OCNM), a dissolutinal Cave system located in the Klamath Mountains of southwest Oregan, are shown to reflect golobal paleoclimates. Given the high cost of obtaining numerous U-series dates and that many record lie beyond the range of the U-Th dating method (~500 ka), we have explored a technique for modelling the growth of speleothems both between dates and beyond 500 ka using theoretical and empirical growth data applied to OCNM speleothems.
