The Development of a Method for the Extraction and Measurement of
Noble Gases from Fluid Inclusions in Samples of Calcium Carbonate
Abstract
Already well-established in paleoclimatology research is the use of calcium carbonate
in speleothems as an accurate and long-range dating archive and noble gas concentrations in
ground water as a paleotemperature indicator. In this study, the possibility of combining the
two is explored; that is, extracting fluid inclusions from speleothems to be analyzed for noble
gas concentrations. The crusher, a stainless steel ball in a cylinder, was used to grind samples
