Sclerochronology is an interdisciplinary research field that analysis, in a temporal context, physical and chemical variations in the hard structures of marine organisms. Over the past decade, sclerochronology research has expanded in many parts of the world, including the Adriatic Sea. In a framework of Marie-Curie ITN project ARAMACC and two research projects financed by the Croatian Science Foundation (SCOOL and BiVACME), scientists have applied sclerochronology methods to investigate shells of long-living as well as commercially important bivalves. This presentation provides an overview of the recent sclerochronology research in the Adriatic, including (i) growth chronology construction from annual growth increments in shell cross-section, (ii) analysis of stable isotopes of oxygen (δ18O), carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) in shell carbonate material, and (iii) analysis of magnesium and barium in bivalve shells.
