The strength of this approach is that the oxygen and carbon composition of carbonates is strongly controlled by prevailing environmental factors such as temperature and vegetation cover. Consequently, these isotopes provide a powerful technique for understanding past climatic regimes in greater detail. Until recently, however, stable isotopes have not been widely used in the British Quaternary as a means of palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. , 2008; Candy, 2009).
