Summary
Abstract: To better understand North Pacific climate variability at
interannual to interdecadal scales, we have developed a new tool for
paleoenvironmental reconstruction. We show that growth rings in
long-lived geoduck clams (Panopea abrupta) can provide high quality,
annually resolved records of sea-surface temperature (SST). We used
shell samples from the Strait of Juan de Fuca, in Washington State, ... View entire text
