Abstract

Paleotemperatures calculated from the isotopic composition of the belemnites give an average of 13.6°C for the "normal'marine waters. However, paleotemperatures based on the inoceramid bivalve data imply considerably higher values. Thus, although geochemistry is a powerful tool in paleoenvironmental analysis, habitat-related controls may significantly alter the observed geochemical signature. -from Authors
