Watanabe, Tsuyoshi; Gagan, Michael; Correge, Thierry; Scott-Gagan, Heather; Cowley, Joan; Hantoro, Wahyoe

Description

Diploastrea heliopora forms dense, robust, dome-shaped coral colonies throughout the reef ecosystems of the tropical Pacific and Indian Oceans. This slow-growing (2 to 6 mm/yr) coral has the potential to yield continuous paleoclimate records spanning up to 1000 yr for the warmest waters on Earth, the Indo-Pacific Warm Pool, and has a long fossil history as a single recognizable species. Despite the potential of Diploastrea to be an important new paleoclimate archive, little is known about the...[Show more]
