Late Barremian to early Albian palaeotemperatures have been determined through oxygen isotope analyses of well-preserved brachiopod, bivalve, gastropod and ammonite shells, and belemnite rostra from the Caucasus. Results from calcitic invertebrate skeletal elements from the upper Barremian Sartousiana, Securiformis and Waagenoides zones indicate palaeotemperatures of 19.2, 12.0-17.1 and 11.3-14.3 degrees C, respectively. In contrast, early Aptian fossils of the Weissi and Deshayesi zones reveal significantly higher palaeotemperatures (20.5-22.3 and 17.1 degrees C, respectively), than those obtained from brachiopod shells of the Securiformis Zone. Isotopic palaeotemperature data are not available for the Furcata Zone in the Caucasus. The warmest conditions in our study interval developed during the late Aptian Melchioris-Abichi Chrone according to data on bivalves, gastropods and the ammonite Parahoplites (20.8-27.1 degrees C) and the Subnodosocostatum Chrone (?25.3 degrees C), on the basis of a shell of the oyster Amphidonte.
