Carbon isotope records from extant Caribbean and South Pacific sponges: Evolution of δ13C in surface water DIC
Stable isotope records of demosponges from the Caribbean and Coral Sea are described for the purpose of studying the influence of fossil fuel CO2 on the carbon isotopic composition of dissolved
Atmosphere–ocean dynamics in the Western Indian Ocean recorded in corals
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.
Postglacial flooding history of Mayotte Lagoon (Comoro Archipelago, southwest Indian Ocean)
Abstract Four cores from the fringing reefs and five sediment cores from Mayotte Lagoon, Comoro Archipelago, southwest Indian Ocean, which reached the Pleistocene/Holocene boundary, form the database
Skeletal morphogenesis and growth mode of modern and fossil deep-water isidid gorgonians (Octocorallia) in the West Pacific (New Zealand and Sea of Okhotsk)
Fabric and growth mode of deep-water isidid gorgonian skeletons showing bright Mg-calcitic internodes and dark proteinageous nodes were investigated on modern, subrecent and fossil skeletons. The
Stable Sr-isotope, Sr/Ca, Mg/Ca, Li/Ca and Mg/Li ratios in the scleractinian cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa
The aragonitic skeletons of scleractinian cold-water corals can serve as valuable archives in paleoceanographic studies. The potential of δ88/86Sr, Sr/Ca, Mg/Ca, Li/Ca and Mg/Li ratios of the
Improving SST reconstructions from coral Sr/Ca records: multiple corals from Tahiti (French Polynesia)
We reconstruct SST from coral Sr/Ca ratios measured at three coral cores taken from the lagoon of Tahiti (French Polynesia). Two coral cores were drilled from the same coral colony (one horizontally
Madagascar corals track sea surface temperature variability in the Agulhas Current core region over the past 334 years
A new composite coral record, is linked to historical AC sea surface temperature (SST) instrumental data, showing robust correlations and showing that the AC system is pivotal for inter-ocean heat exchange south of Africa.
Impact of warming events on reef‐scale temperature variability as captured in two Little Cayman coral Sr/Ca records
The rising temperature of the world’s oceans is affecting coral reef ecosystems by increasing the frequency and severity of bleaching and mortality events. The susceptibility of corals to
The influence of seawater pH on U/Ca ratios in the scleractinian cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa
The increasing p CO 2 in seawater is a serious threat for marine calcifiers and alters the biogeochemistry of the ocean. Therefore, the reconstruction of past-seawater properties and their impact on
