Diagenesis and geochemistry of Porites corals from Papua New Guinea:Implications for paleoclimate reconstruction
Coral proxy records of sea surface temperature (SST) and hydrological balance have become important tools in the field of tropical paleoclimatology. However, coral aragonite is subject to post-depositional diagenetic alteration in both the marine and vadose environments. To understand the impact of diagenesis on coral climate proxies, two mid-Holocene Porites corals from raised reefs on Muschu Island, Papua New Guinea, were analysed for Sr/Ca, δ18O, and δ13C along transects from 100% aragonite...[Show more]
