Sea-surface temperature reconstruction from trace elements variations of tropical coralline red algae

Darrenougue, Nicolas; De Deckker, Patrick; Eggins, Stephen; Payri, Claude


We used laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICPMS) to obtain high-resolution variations of the Mg/Ca, Sr/Ca and Li/Ca composition of free-living forms (i.e. rhodoliths) of the coralline red algal species Sporolithon durum in order to test their potential to archive seawater temperature information. A monitoring experiment was conducted based on alizarin red S (ARS) staining of rhodoliths specimens collected in various locations across a ~1km2 rhodolith bed in the...[Show more]
