Identification of growth increments in the shell of the bivalve mollusc Arctica islandica using backscattered electron imaging.

Abstract

Annually resolved growth increments in the shell of the bivalve mollusc Arctica islandica have previously been used in combination with geochemical measurements to successfully construct high-resolution proxy records of past marine environmental conditions. However, to ensure the accuracy of these paleoenvironmental reconstructions it is essential that the… (More)
