    Seasonal temperature fluctuations of Tethyan coastal water are recorded in a pristine, ∼80-My-old rudist shell from Turkey. In order to critically assess factors other than seawater temperature that might have influenced the shell geochemical record, three different paleo-temperature proxies (δ
