Stable isotope analyses of marine bivalve growth increment samples have been used to estimate early Oligocene (29.4 - 31.2) Ma and early Miocene (24.0 Ma) seafloor palaeotemperature from the southwestern continental margin of the Ross Sea. Measured d18O values average +2.5 ‰ in the early Miocene and range between +1.26 to +3.24 ‰ in the early Oligocene. The results show that palaeoceanographic conditions in McMurdo Sound during the mid-Cenozoic were significantly different from those of...
