Feb 22, 1985· The isotopic ratio of strontium87 to strontium86 shows no detectable variation in presentday ocean water but changes slowly over millions of years. The strontium contained in carbonate shells of marine organisms records the ratio of strontium87 to strontium86 of the oceans at the time that the shells form.

therefore, can be used for seawater Sr isotope ratio reconstructions and for Sr isotope stratigraphy. Marine barite precipitates in the water column (Dehairs et al., 1980; Bishop 1988), incorporating strontium from seawater into the crystal structure. Barite contains from 7000 to 10,000 ppm strontium and is a ubiquitous mineral in oxic deepsea
Isotope studies can be useful locally in enhancing the stratigraphic resolution of existing biostratigraphy. Figure 2 shows correlation of a Pleistocene section between two wells in the offshore Gulf of Mexico using bio stratigraphic control and the identification of standard oxygen isotope stages.
