Abstract

Palaeo-climate research is fundamental to understanding past and future climates. Qualitative and quantitative methods were used to investigate the speleothem palaeo-climate community, to improve methodology used by the community, and to develop two palaeo-climate proxy records for southeast Australia for the Holocene and Last Interglacial/early glacial period. Results showed that the regional Holocene climate has been influenced by a range of solar and ocean-climate patterns, and that these patterns are also present in proxy data from the warmer Last Interglacial. Results also showed that during the last early glacial period climate was more stable than during either interglacial period.
