2015) and lacustrine (Leng & Marshall 2004) sediments because stable carbon and oxygen isotope ratios of carbonates are often linked to palaeotemperature and palaeoenvironmental changes (Broecker 1982), whereas carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios in organics are related to the trophic status and organic matter sources in ecosystems (Rolff 2000; Voss et al.
