Fig. 6 Correlation of discharge (Q) and d18Ow values for the Meuse during the years 1997 to 2007 for all months (circles) with a logarithmic fit (light grey line) with equation: d18Ow ¼ 0:315 lnQ  5:592 (R2 = 0.60; p\0.0005) and for the growing season of the shells (squares) with a logarithmic fit (dark grey line) with equation d18Ow ¼ 0:291  lnQ  5:659 (R2 = 0.44; p\0.0005).
