Stable isotope composition of subfossilCerastoderma glaucumshells from the Szczecin Bay brackish deposits and its palaeogeographical implications…

Publication year: 2012 Source: Quaternary Research, Available online 27 January 2012 Ryszard K. Borówka, Wacław Strobel, Stanisław Hałas The environmental conditions of the Szczecin Bay, which existed prior to Szczecin Lagoon, have been reconstructed on the basis of the stable carbon and oxygen isotope (O andC) analysis and radiocarbon dates obtained for subfossil shells ofCerastoderma (Cardium) glaucum. The shells in the collected core were well preserved in their life positions, representing a geochemical record of past temperature variation over the middle Holocene. Three major periods with different thermal conditions have been distinguished in the interval ~ 6000–4300 cal yr BP, when the important Littorina regional transgression took place
