Source of trace element variability in Great Barrier Reef corals affected by the Burdekin flood plumes

Alibert, C; Kinsley, Leslie; Fallon, Stewart; McCulloch, Malcolm; Berkelmans, Ray; McAllister, Felicity


Massive corals in the Great Barrier Reef, analyzed at high-resolution for Sr/Ca (thermal ionization mass spectrometry) and trace elements such as Ba and Mn (laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry), can provide continuous proxy records of dissolved seawater concentrations, as well as sea surface temperature (SST). A 10-yr record (1989 to 1998) from Pandora Reef, an inshore reef regularly impacted by the freshwater plumes of the Burdekin River, is compared with an overlapping...[Show more]
