Evidence of El Nino and the Indian Ocean Dipole from Sr/Ca derived SSTs for modern corals at Christmas Island, eastern Indian Ocean
While the El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) has been regarded as an almost exclusively Pacific Ocean phenomenon, there is a growing amount of evidence that there are interannual events in other ocean basins which are possibly related to ENSO. Here we describe results from Sr/Ca analysis of a 24 year coral record from Christmas Island in the tropical eastern Indian Ocean. The Sr/Ca data was matched with blended ship and satellite data from the region to produce the Sr/Ca-SST calibration. There...[Show more]
