Abstract: Samples were collected in 1991 and 1992 from massive Porites corals in Madang
Lagoon (5 deg 13'S; 145deg 49'E, .2M Depth) and at Duranguit Reef, Laing
Island (4deg 9'S; 144deg 53'E; 3M Depth), Bismark Sea coast, Papua New Guinea.
The isotope record displays a marked seasonality, with an average annual range
of 0.3-0.4% and as much as 0.8% PDB. Smoothed coral 18O records are correlated
with both Madang rainfall and Tahiti-Darwin SOI. On-line data are available
free of charge, other forms are available for the cost of reproduction.
