Chronological control of coral records using luminescent lines and evidence for non-stationary ENSO teleconnections in northeast Australia
Eight, multicentury, Porites coral cores were used to develop a 373-year chronology by cross-dating techniques adapted from dendrochronology. Characteristic patterns of distinct luminescent lines within the coral skeletons were matched between coral cores from inshore and mid-shelf reefs in the central Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Skeleton-plots of luminescent banding were produced for each core and combined into a master chronology back to AD 1615. In addition to improving dating control,...[Show more]
