Climate records from a bivalved Methuselah (Arctica islandica, Mollusca; Iceland)
We measured annual shell growth rates of a 374-year-old (radiometrically confirmed) bivalve mollusk specimen of Arctica islandica (Linnaeus). This bivalve represents the oldest ever reported
Atmosphere–ocean dynamics in the Western Indian Ocean recorded in corals
TLDR
The results indicate that the coral δ18O, in combination with other proxies, can be used to monitor temporal and spatial variations in the sea–surface temperature and the fresh water balance within the Indian Ocean on interannual to interdecadal time–scales.
Reconstructing seawater δ18O from paired coral δ18O and Sr/Ca ratios: Methods, error analysis and problems, with examples from Tahiti (French Polynesia) and Timor (Indonesia)
We compare several statistical routines that may be used to calculate delta O-18 and SSS from paired coral Sr/Ca and delta O-18 measurements. Typically, the delta O-18(coral)-SST relationship is
Reefs and islands of the Chagos Archipelago, Indian Ocean: why it is the world's largest no-take marine protected area.
TLDR
The Chagos Archipelago was designated a no-take marine protected area (MPA) in 2010; it contains 25-50% of the Indian Ocean reef area remaining in excellent condition, as well as the world's largest contiguous undamaged reef area.
A SEASONALLY RESOLVED BOTTOM-WATER TEMPERATURE RECORD FOR THE PERIOD AD 1866-2002 BASED ON SHELLS OF ARCTICA ISLANDICA (MOLLUSCA, NORTH SEA)
Existing studies on recent global warming are almost exclusively based on environmental data from the Earth's surface. Seasonal information on the effects of climate change on subsurface settings of
Western Indian Ocean marine and terrestrial records of climate variability: a review and new concepts on land–ocean interactions since AD 1660
We examine the relationship between three tropical and two subtropical western Indian Ocean coral oxygen isotope time series to surface air temperatures (SAT) and rainfall over India, tropical East
Caribbean coral tracks Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation and past hurricane activity
It is highly debated whether global warming contributed to the strong hurricane activity observed during the last decade. The crux of the recent debate is the limited length of the reliable
Three monthly coral Sr/Ca records from the Chagos Archipelago covering the period of 1950–1995 A.D.: reproducibility and implications for quantitative reconstructions of sea surface temperature
In order to assess the fidelity of coral Sr/Ca for quantitative reconstructions of sea surface temperature variations, we have generated three monthly Sr/Ca time series from Porites corals from the
Sr/Ca and δ18O in a fast‐growing Diploria strigosa coral: Evaluation of a new climate archive for the tropical Atlantic
This study provides the first monthly resolved, 41-year record of geochemical variations (δ18O and Sr/Ca) in a fast-growing Diploria strigosa brain coral from Guadeloupe, Caribbean Sea. Linear
