Assessment of Mg/Ca in Saccostrea glomerata (the Sydney rock oyster) shell as a potential temperature record

Tynan, Sarah; Opdyke, Bradley; Davies, Maureen; Eggins, Stephen; Dutton, Andrea


Bivalve shell Mg/Ca records can be important potential tracers of paleo-temperature, but evidence has shown that the temperature dependence of trace metal incorporation rates can vary significantly between different species and even within the same species. This study assesses one such bivalve specimen as a potential temperature proxy for the east coast of Australia. Specimens of the Sydney rock oyster (Saccostrea glomerata) were cultured for approximately one year at two locations on the east...[Show more]
