Environmental control of the oxygen isotope composition of Porites coral microatolls

McGregor, H.V.; Fischer, Mathew J; Gagan, Michael; Fink, David; Woodroffe, Colin

Description

Understanding the influence of climatic and non-climatic factors on geochemical signals in corals is critical for assessing coral-derived records of tropical climate variability. Porites microatolls form large, disk-shaped colonies constrained in their upward growth by exposure at or close to mean spring low water level, and occur on Indo-Pacific reefs. Microatolls appear suitable for paleoclimate reconstruction, however the systematics of the microatoll chemistry-climate relationship are yet...[Show more]
