Palaeo-seawater temperatures based on carbonate oxygen isotope data: Why we might have a problem?


The stable oxygen-isotope ratios (delta18O) of marine carbonate materials are conventionally used to estimate – within geological and analytical error bars - the ambient palaeo-seawater temperature during the precipitation... [ view full abstract ]
