Macrofossils (belemnites, Gryphaea and ammonites) from the Callovian-Oxfordian boundary at Redcliff Point, Weymouth, Dorset were examined using petrographic, isotopic and geochemical methods to investigate the environmental conditions within which they were formed. The belemnites (Hibolithes hastata), Gryphaea and ammonites ( Cardioceras sp.) exhibit the petrographic and geochemical criteria for being well preserved. Values of δ 18 O for Gryphaea provide palaeotemperature ranges of c. 9.8–14.1… CONTINUE READING
