|Abstract:||The Sr/Ca ratios in molluscan shells in Singapore waters were measured using the X-ray fluorescence (XRF) technique. Our results show that the Sr/Ca ratio varies greatly among different species. However, within the same species, this ratio is practically the same for samples collected from sites close together but varies significantly for samples from sites far apart. Furthermore, this study shows that whole shell analysis using the XRF technique is simple and quick and that its application to environmental monitoring seems feasible.|
