Abstract Inhabiting areas of the ocean where paleoenvironmental records are sparse, deep-sea corals represent valuable yet largely untapped Holocene records of intermediate and deep ocean variability. δ 18 O and δ 13 C were analyzed in nine live-collected deep-sea gorgonian corals (Isididae and Coralliidae) in order to further develop the “lines” paleotemperature method. Least squares linear regression analysis for full lifespan δ 18 O vs. δ 13 C (corrected for δ 18 O water and δ 13 C DIC ) was… CONTINUE READING
