Coccolith-derived isotopic proxies in palaeoceanography: where geologists need biologists

Abstract:

Coccolithophore biominerals, the coccoliths, represent an important part of the Meso-Cenozoic sedimentary archive. Geochemical analyses of coccoliths can be used to unravel climatic fluctuations in the oceanic realm, but such reconstructions are complicated due to the problem of the "vital effect". This concept refers to the modulation in the record of the physico-chemistry of seawater in calcite due to algal physiology. For decades, it was thought that the magnitude of the vital effect was s...
