Environmental records from Great Barrier Reef corals: inshore versus offshore drivers

Walther, Benjamin D.; Kingsford, Michael J.; McCulloch, Malcolm T.

Description

The biogenic structures of stationary organisms can be effective recorders of environmental fluctuations. These proxy records of environmental change are preserved as geochemical signals in the carbonate skeletons of scleractinian corals and are useful for reconstructions of temporal and spatial fluctuations in the physical and chemical environments of coral reef ecosystems, including The Great Barrier Reef (GBR). We compared multi-year monitoring of water temperature and dissolved elements...[Show more]
