Summary
Abstract: Data consists of deglacial sea-level record at Tahiti (French Polynesia) Site
location (Papeete Harbor): 17 deg 32'S 149 deg 34'W

Ages are weighted mean calendar ages of corals based on U-Th ages measured by
TIMS and calibrated C14 ages when the sample was only dated by AMS-C14.

This relative sea-level record is corrected for the subsidence at Tahiti (0.25
m/kyr).

Geochronological data, together with some interpretations, can be found in the
following papers: Bard et al. (1996), Montaggioni et al. (1997), Montaggioni &
Bard (1998), Bard et al. (1998).
