dc.description.abstractThe stable oxygen isotope composition (d¹⁸O) of a precipitated carbonate depends mainly on the isotope composition, salinity, and temperature of the host fluid, whereas the stable carbon isotope composition (d¹³C) reflects the source of CO2 for precipitation, such as meteoric or sea water, shell dissolution, or various biochemical origins, including microbial oxidation of organic matter and methane. Despite the potentially complex array of controls, natural waters tend to show a characteristic range of isotope values which in turn are mimicked or tracked by the carbonate minerals precipitated from them. Consequently, plots of d¹⁸O versus d¹³C for carbonate materials can help identify their depositional and/or diagenetic environment(s).en_NZ
