Since the pioneering work by Emiliani and Shackleton, the carbon and oxygen stable isotopes of carbonates have been of major importance in geological and environmental sciences. Palaeoceanographic and terrestrial climate research (e.g. on secondary cave carbonates or lacustrine sediments) routinely make use of the δ13C and δ18O of carbonates as climate proxies.
