Abstract

Annual growth bands of mollusk shells record several types of paleoenvironmental information, including geochemical proxies for water properties and morphological characteristics of growth and mortality. Sclerochronology, the marine counterpart of dendrochronology, offers a way to link individual shells together to form long continuous records of such parameters. It also allows for precise dating of recent shells and identification of contemporaneous fossil individuals. A seven-shell 154-yr chronology was constructed for Georges Bank using three live-collected and four-dead collected shells. Construction of a 1000-yr sclerochronology is judged to be feasible
