Summary
Abstract: Recent chronostratigraphic evidence suggests that the central Australian Great
Barrier Reef formed within the past 780 k.y. Periplatform sediments of the

the d18O of planktonic foraminifera to the present. Several investigators have
proposed that this trend represents an appreciable late Pleistocene warming
