Stable isotopes in late middle Eocene to Oligocene foraminifera.

Journal Article

Oxygen and carbon isotope ratios in Eocene and Oligocene planktonic and benthic foraminifera have been investigated from Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Ocean locations. The major changes in Eocene-Oligocene benthic foraminiferal oxygen isotopes were enrichment of up to 1per mille in 18O associated with the middle/late Eocene boundary and the Eocene/Oligocene boundary at locations which range from 1 to 4km paleodepth. -from Authors
