Mg/Ca paleothermometry in high salinity environments
Planktonic foraminiferal Mg/Ca ratios have become a fundamental temperature proxy in past climate reconstructions. However, in the highly evaporative seas of the tropics and subtropics, anomalously high planktonic foraminiferal Mg/Ca ratios arise, possibly linked to high salinities. The extent to which salinity affects Mg uptake into foraminiferal calcite remains disputed. Some studies suggest only minor salinity effects, whereas others suggest a dominant role. Here, we present new data from...[Show more]
