Correlation of stable oxygen isotope temperature record with light attenuation profiles in reef-dwellingTridacna shells

Abstract

Molluscs are known to record environmental changes in their carbonate shells in detail. This paper reports the findings of a high-resolution analysis of stable oxygen isotopic compositions and light transmission properties of a shell of the reef-dwelling Pacific giant clamTridacna gigas. Our findings reveal that the annual growth rates and the longevity… (More)
