Offsets from isotopic equilibrium in biogenic carbonates have complicated paleoclimate reconstructions for decades. We use a new archive of climate, deep-sea corals, to evaluate the calcification processes, independent of photosynthesis, that contribute to these offsets. Carbon and oxygen stable isotope data from six modern deep-sea corals show strong linear trends between δ 13 C and δ 18 O. Slopes of these trends between samples are similar and range between 2.1-2.6 for ∆δ 13 C/∆δ 18 O. Linear… CONTINUE READING
