Late Holocene inter-annual temperature variability reconstructed from the d18O of archaeological Ostrea angasi shells

Tynan, Sarah; Opdyke, Bradley; Dutton, Andrea; Walczak, M H

Description

Two multi-year oxygen isotope (δ18O) records were obtained from archaeological Ostrea angasi shells, confirming the potential of this species to provide valuable environmental records for the late Holocene period in southeastern Australia. High-resolution δ18Oshell samples from the O. angasi clearly display a seasonal variability, offering insight into past climate conditions in a region where such information is presently limited. The oxygen isotope record in O. angasi reflects a combined...[Show more]
