Coupled Climate and sea-level changes deduced from Huon Peninsula coral terraces of the last ice age

Yokoyama, Yusuke; Esat, Tezer; Lambeck, Kurt

Description

Huon Peninsula, Papua New Guinea, is a tectonically unstable, uplifting shoreline ringed by emergent coral terraces. The terraces were formed during episodes of rapid sea-level rise when corals constructed large, discrete coral platforms that were subsequently uplifted. Uranium series ages of four prominent Huon Peninsula last glacial (OIS 3) coral terraces coincide with the timing of major North Atlantic climate reversals at intervals of 6000-7000 yr between 30 000 yr and 60 000 yr ago....[Show more]
