Summary
Abstract: Recent large-scale palaeoclimate reconstructions of past temperature have been
essentially biased to the extratropics owing to a paucity of proxy data in
tropical regions. Herein we describe the first coral-based reconstruction of
sea surface temperatures (SSTs) for the whole of the tropics (30N-30S). It was
developed from 14 disparate coral records located in the Indian and Pacific
oceans. ... View entire text
