The coral record of last interglacial sea levels and sea surface temperatures
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]
