Summary
Abstract: Results of analysis of cores collected from 'fossil' massive Porites corals
exposed in the raised reefs of the Huon Peninsula, Papua New Guinea, and living
corals. The cores were collected vertically down the axis of maximum growth of
the colony. Cores were subsampled into 1mm growth increments, resulting in an
average of 12 samples/annual growth increment. These samples were analysed for
d18O, ... View entire text
