  • Intrashell oxygen and carbon stable isotope profiles (δ18O,δ13C) were established for Mesodesma donacium shells from the preceramic archaeological site, Quebrada de los Burros in coastal southern Peru, to reconstruct the sea-surface temperature (SST) variations and to estimate changes of the El Niño-Southem Oscillation (ENSO) interannual variability from the early Holocene to the present. Very strong oxygen isotopic excursions attributed to El Niño events are evident in three shells dated… CONTINUE READING
