AbstractA series of shell samples has been studied to determine the magnitude and mechanisms of carbon exchange between shells and their environment. Laboratory contamination experiments included the storing of shell samples in acid and calcareous environments of different 14C concentrations as well as studies of carbon exchange in the course of thermal recrystallization in solid state in an atomosphere of carbon dioxide. The applicability of differential thermal analysis to studies of the structure and texture of shells is discussed.
