  • [1] The stable carbon (δ13C) and oxygen (δ18O) isotopic compositions of four Holocene specimens of Montastraea sp. and Siderastrea sp. coral skeletons from the Dominican Republic were analyzed to examine decadal-scale fluctuations in regional precipitation. The specimens range in length from 47 to 197 years individually and range in age from ∼7.2 to 5.2 kyr. Oscillations in the δ13C and δ18O of coral skeletons from the Holocene Enriquillo Valley occur with a seemingly consistent frequency of 15… CONTINUE READING
