by Holli Riebeek • May 6, 2005. Oxygen is one of the most significant keys to
deciphering past climates. Oxygen comes in heavy and light varieties, or isotopes
Oxygen consists of three stable isotopes: <sup>16</sup>O, <sup>17</sup>O, and <sup>18</sup>O. Most of the world's
oxygen is <sup>16</sup>O, a little is <sup>18</sup>O, and a tiny proportion is <sup>17</sup>O. <sup>17</sup>O is so scarce that ...
