New views of tropical paleoclimates from corals

Gagan, Michael; Ayliffe, Linda; Beck, J Warren; Cole, J; Druffel, E; Dunbar, Robert B; Schrag, D


Corals offer a rich archive of past climate variability in tropical ocean regions where instrumental data are limited and where our knowledge of multi-decadal climate sensitivity is incomplete. In the eastern equatorial Pacific, coral isotopic records track variations in ENSO-related changes in sea-surface temperature; further west, corals record variability in sea-surface temperature and rainfall that accompanies zonal displacement of the Indonesian Low during ENSO events. These multi-century...[Show more]
