A high-quality delta18O record has been obtained from a deep sea core in the Somali Basin in a water depth of 4020 m, well below the foraminiferal lysocline, by analyzing bulk sediment instead of picked foraminifera. In some areas this may be a valuable tool for extending the applicability of the delta18O stratigraphy, for obtaining data by a less labor-intensive procedure, and for conserving valuable core material. Additionally, we draw attention to the need for...
