Coral reconstructions of mid-Holocene ocean-atmosphere variability in the western Pacific warm pool

McGregor, Helen Victoria

Description

This thesis explores Holocene climate conditions in the western Pacific warm pool (WPWP) using geochemical tracers in fossil corals from the north coast of Papua New Guinea (PNG). The WPWP, with an annual average sea surface temperature (SST) exceeding 28°C, is not only a major heat source driving equator-to-pole atmospheric circulation, but is a fundamental component of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) system. Ocean-atmosphere interactions in the warm pool are instrumental in...[Show more]
