Summary
Abstract: Arctica islandica growth band widths showing synchronization of growth among
members of a population, including first composite sclerochronology
incorporating dead-collected ("fossil") mollusks. Also given are aspartic
acid, standardized SST (after Lazzari, 1995), and standardized temperature
from shell d18O (after Weidman, 1995) data.
