The early work of Urey and his students had involved studies of the relation between oxygen isotopes and temperature in recent molluscs, and the application of this relationship to the determination of paleotemperatures in the Cretaceous.
Emiliani, Cesare 2009
I used his isotope results on those specimens to correct for disequilibrium effects when calculating the paleotemperatures in my data.
He later worked on the separation of uranium isotopes and, more recently, he has been concerned with the measurement of paleotemperatures, investigations into the origin of the planets, and the chemical problems of the origin of the earth.
He was editor of the Journal of Chemical Physics during 1933-1940 and he has written numerous papers on the structure of atoms and molecules, the discovery of heavy hydrogen and its properties, separation of isotopes, measurement of paleotemperatures and the origin of planets.
The team determined when the stalagmite layers were deposited, then deduced paleotemperatures and the general types of vegetation growing in the vicinity during that era by examining the carbon and oxygen isotopes within the calcium carbonate.
