> (SS#156)*
> Submitted by: David Gillikin, Alan Wanamaker
>
> Carbon and nitrogen isotopes in biogenic carbonates have the potential 
> to provide substantial information about past and present 
> biogeochemical cycles. However, the relationship between carbon 
> isotopes in biogenic carbonates and dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) 
> is rarely straightforward. There are metabolic carbon, pH, and growth 
> and age related effects on carbon isotopes in bivalves, corals, 
> foraminifera, coccolithophores and other calcifying organisms. 
> Carbonate bound organics also may hold a record of nitrogen cycling, 
> but this proxy has just recently been investigated. We seek 
> contributions involving research that aims to further our 
> understanding about the carbon and nitrogen isotope proxy in marine 
> and freshwater biogenic carbonates as well as paleorecords and novel 
> techniques involving these proxies.
