Barrier Reef corals help scientists calibrate ancient climate records

Read the full story from UPI.

Corals can help scientists track ancient climate patterns, but new research suggests that traditional analysis methods for analyzing coral’s ancient growth aren’t as accurate as previously thought.

Luckily, scientists have developed an improved method, a combination of high-resolution microscopic analysis and geochemical modeling. Researchers described the new technique this week in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science.
