AbstractTravertine deposits occur abundantly at past and present sites of waterfalls in the Arbuckle Mountains region of Oklahoma. This area (1600km2) consists of folded and faulted Prepaleozoic and Paleozoic rocks, with abundant outcrops of Paleozoic carbonate rocks. Samples of recently deposited and old travertine from the Turner Falls area were collected during a 1987 field trip and analyzed for 13C, 14C and 18O content. The aquatic chemistry of travertine depositing creeks was investigated systematically and compared with those of similar areas in SE and central Europe.
