Carbonate geochemistry utilizes the chemistry and fabric of carbonate minerals to reconstruct the conditions present in ancient environments. For example, the isotopic and elemental chemistry of carbonate , whether formed as the shell of an organism or through abiotic chemical reactions, captures a record of the temperature and chemistry of fluid from which it was formed. As such, carbonate chemistry serves as a important proxy for deciphering Earth history.
