Extracting growth rates from the nonlaminated coralline sponge Astrosclera willeyana using bomb radiocarbon

Fallon, Stewart; Guilderson, Thomas


The isotopic and chemical composition of the skeletons of hermatypic reef building corals have been used for many years to generate proxy time series records of surface oceanic conditions (water temperature and salinity). These types of records have recently been constructed using coralline sponges. Because they are found in a greater range of depths, coralline sponges have the potential to fill in gaps in our understanding of subsurface oceanographic variability. Using coralline sponges...[Show more]
