Modern Tasman Sea surface reservoir ages from deep-sea black corals

Komugabe, Aimee; Fallon, Stewart; Thresher, Robert E.; Eggins, Stephen


Marine reservoir ages are a key element in calculating and constraining uncertainty in radiocarbon age estimates and are also essential to better understand regional ocean circulation. In this study, we present a new method to reconstruct long-term, high-resolution sea surface reservoir ages based on analysis of the organic skeleton of deep-sea (560. m) black coral (Anthozoa, Antipatharia). Our results confirm that antipatharians are extremely slow growing (typical radial growth rate for a...[Show more]
