Oxygen and carbon isotopes have been determined from Late Jurassic (Oxfordian-Tithonian) belemnites and inoceramid bivalves from two Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) sites located on the Falkland Plateau. Mean belemnite delta18O values, derived from well preserved skeletal material, were -1.29‰ from DSDP site 330 and -1.45‰ from DSDP site 511. Assuming a seawater SMOW value of -1.0‰, mean palaeotemperatures calculated from the oxygen isotopic composition are 17.2°C and 17.9°C, respectively. The inoceramid bivalves yielded much...
