Carbon isotope composition of lipids from bones and host sediments of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, supplement to: Baturin, Gleb N; Romankevich, Evgeny A; Shadsky, I P (1983): Carbon isotope composition of bone phosphate lipids in bottom sediments. Oceanology, 23(5), 597-600

Gleb N Baturin, Evgeny A Romankevich & I P Shadsky
Carbon in lipids separated from organic matter of fish and marine mammal bones from bottom of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans has d13C values ranging from -21.6 to -25.8 per mil and is isotopically lighter than that in lipids and total organic matter of host sediments. During fossilization of organic phosphate carbon isotope composition of bound lipids of fish bone becomes lighter and that of bones of mammals becomes heavier, possibly as a result of...
