Oxygen and Carbon Isotopic Data from Wellington Creek, Lorain County, Ohio
Entry ID: CSUOHIO_CESTP_EDP_19960010

Abstract: Oxygen isotopic values have been obtained from microsamples of the
aragonitic freshwater bivalves Sphaerium striatinum (Pisidiidae) and
Anodonta grandis (Unionidae) alive from Wellington Creek, Ohio. To
test whether these organisms secrete their shell in isotopic
equilibrium, the delta 18O values of shell aragonite are compared to
ambient water temperature and delta 18O values monitored for > 1

Quality Isotopic values for carbonate were corrected for acid fractionation
and the presence of 17O. Calibration and precision of the analyses
were monitored by daily analysis of standards NBS-18 and NBS-19. It
was determined that precision is better than +/- 0.1 per mil.
