A diffusion-reaction model of carbon isotope fractionation in foraminifera

Abstract

Fossil foraminiferal shells are utilized in paleoceanography to extract information about environmental conditions of the past ocean. Based on several assumptions, the ratio of C and C preserved in their shells is used to reconstruct, for example, the paleoproductivity or the oceanic pCO . Metabolism of the living organism and the sea water chemistry, 2… (More)
