Dear Isogeochemists,
I'm currently collaborating on a project investigating the life history of
Iron age Cod from the Baltic Sea (Gotland). Water temperatures calculated
from d18O values of cod otoliths (using modern cod thermal tolerance)
suggest a rather low d18O value for the Baltic Sea during the Iron age
(-5”VSMOW).

Two questions....
Has anyone attempted to calculate the Baltic Sea water values for the Iron
age?
Are there any studies which have determined the isotope value of the modern
Baltic Sea (DIC and/or d18O)?

Thanks,
Bill
