Late Holocene δ13C and pollen records of paleosalinity from tidal marshes in the San Francisco Bay estuary, California

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Records of stable carbon isotopes (δ13C) are presented from cores collected from 4 San Francisco Bay marshes and used as a proxy for changes in estuary salinity. The 4 marshes included in this study are located along a natural salinity gradients that exists in the San Francisco Bay, and records of vegetation change at all 4 sites can be used to infer changes in overall estuary paleosalinity. The δ13C values complement pollen data from the same marsh sites producing a paleoclimate record for the late Holocene period in the San Francisco Bay estuary
