Abstract

New stable isotope analyses on molluscan shells from a long core drilled in the crater lake of Valle di Castiglione, near Rome, extended the investigated portion of the core to 37 m. The results suggest a semiarid setting for the lake, anomalous for the temperate climate indicated for the crater lakes of Central Italy. Thus the O 18 values of these biogenic carbonates represent a powerful tool for reconstruction of the past change in their hydrological balance as conditioned by climatic changes during the Pleistocene age
