Table 1 Water properties under different environmental conditions. In particular, [CO32−] and the corresponding saturation states of calcite and aragonite (Ωcal and Ωarag) are calculated for modern, 2110 AD, and Cretaceous conditions using CO2calc (Robbins et al. 2010). The numbers in the gray color column show the initial settings for the calculation

  1. Here, we assumed that the pressuere at 1 km water depth roughly corresponded to ~ 100 bar (1000 dbar)
  2. Salinity was fined at 34
