The oxygen isotopic composition of turtle phosphate from Early (Aptian–Albian) Cretaceous turtles from several North American palaeolatitudes was measured to estimate the isotopic compositions of groundwater δ18Ow. In Earth's history, under greenhouse conditions, researchers have recorded an intensification of the hydrological cycle as global heat was distributed from the equator to the poles via latent heat transport. Previous studies, using pedogenic carbonate nodules, show an increased rainout effect, causing intense depletion in δ18Ow at high latitudes due to this phenomenon. This study shows the utility of another palaeo-δ18Ow...
