Abstract

This paper describes the isotopic fractionations and shows that variations of the oxygen isotopic composition of foraminifera along deep sea cores are generally a continental ice volume index and thus a worldwide oceanic stratigraphic marker. Specific applications of oxygen isotopes related either to past temperature changes or local sea water isotopic composition variations are presented.
