  • New insight from Great Barrier Reef coral provides correction factor to global climate records

    Using newly developed geological techniques, researchers, from left, microscopy expert Mayandi Sivaguru, Kaitlin Fouke, geologist and microbiologist Bruce Fouke, Kyle Fouke, Lauren Todorov and their colleagues made discoveries about the formational history of Porites coral skeletons to fine-tune the records used to make global climate predictions.
