Isotopic signatures can be used to optimize bioretention cells in urban and industrial settings.
Caves are natural intact cavities found in many different landscapes which have been accessible to humans and animals for millions of years.
Biogenic apatite is a molecule made up of calcium, phosphorus and oxygen. Importantly, the phosphorus is found primarily in the form of phosphate (PO4) – which is present in both soft and hard tissues in organisms.
Caves – or rock shelters – have been studied by archaeologists for the past two centuries, with specific focus on the investigation of prehistoric cave paintings, ceremonial use and other evidence of occupation.
There are numerous different options for dating marine samples, each with applicable timespans, levels of certainty and limitations.
