The rise and fall of the Last Interglacial (LI) sea levels and sea surface temperatures (SSTs) are evaluated using U-series dating combined with Sr/Ca ratios in corals from both stable and tectonically uplifted sites. Along the stable coastal margin of Western Australia, an extensive series of LI coral reefs occur at heights of 2-3 m above present-day sea level. These corals have a very tight cluster of 234U-230Th ages ranging from 129 ± 1 to 119 ± 1 ka, as well as a narrow range of initial...[Show more]
