Severe coral bleaching occurred throughout the tropics in 1997/98. We report high-resolution skeletal oxygen isotope (δ18O) and carbon isotope (δ13C) microprofiles for bleached corals from Pandora Reef, Great Barrier Reef, and Ishigaki Island, Japan, in order to examine the ability of Porites corals to record clear signals of bleaching. Analysis of the annual cycle in δ18O revealed abrupt reductions in skeletal extension immediately after the 1997–98 summer temperature maximum, indicating that… CONTINUE READING
