speleothem

Pronunciación: /ˈspēlēəˌTHem/

sustantivo

Geology
A structure formed in a cave by the deposition of minerals from water, e.g., a stalactite or stalagmite.
Oraciones de ejemplo
  • Stalactites, stalagmites, and other speleothems - or cave formations - grow as water travels through rocks, dissolves minerals, and then seeps into caves and redeposits those substances.
  • The most common type of speleothems studied for palaeoclimate are cylindrical stalagmites.
  • Water chemical data are important for palaeohydrological interpretations, but in this case we restrict the discussion to available water data from close to the studied speleothems.

Origen

1950s: from Greek spēlaion 'cave' + thema 'deposit'.
