a δ18O versus δ13C values of well-preserved oysters and brachiopods compared to samples of poorly preserved oysters, sediment, and cement; bd δ18O versus δ13C values of the three oysters used for high-resolution analyses. The δ18O and δ13C values of specimen CH18-006 are strongly correlated and believed to show the influence of diagenetic alteration. In contrast, the results of CH18-017 and CH18-030 show no correlation and are believed to represent original compositions
