Reproducibility of trace element profiles in a specimen of the deep-water bamboo coral Keratoisis sp.

Sinclair, Daniel; Williams , B.; Allard, G.; Ghaleb, B.; Fallon, Stewart; Ross, S.W.; Risk, M.


Bamboo corals (Order Gorgonacea, Family Isididae) are attractive prospects for deep-sea paleoceanographic reconstruction, capturing trace elements in their calcitic skeletons that may serve as environmental proxies with subdecadal resolution over multi-century timescales. We study the reproducibility and fidelity of trace-element profiles (Ba, Mg, Sr, Mn, U, Pb) in a 420-year-old specimen of the bamboo coral . Keratoisis sp. from the SE USA.Using laser-ablation ICP-MS to obtain multiple...[Show more]
