Environmental control of the isotopic composition of subfossil coccolith calcite: Are laboratory culture data transferable to the natural environment?

Abstract:

Coccoliths contribute significantly to pelagic sediments formed over the last 200 million years, yet their geochemistry has been largely overlooked as a potential record of palaeoenvironmental information. Recently developed techniques have enabled successful extraction of coccolith-dominated sediment fractions. However, the reliability of palaeoenvironmental interpretations that can be drawn from coccolith analyses is still confounded by a poor understanding of the “vital effect” – the physi...
