Systematic change of foraminiferal Mg/Ca ratios across a strong salinity gradient

Abstract:

The Mg/Ca ratio of foraminiferal calcite is an important proxy for estimating past ocean temperatures. Used in conjunction with δ18O of foraminiferal calcite it allows deconvolution of temperature and ice-volume signals to infer past ocean temperatures and salinities (assuming the relationship between seawater δ18O and salinity is known). Such work assumes that temperature is the only, or at least the dominant, environmental controller of foraminiferal Mg/Ca. The semi-enclosed Mediterranean S...
