  • Deep-sea scleractinian coral age and depth distributions in the northwest Atlantic for the last 225,000 years 

    Robinson, Laura F.; Adkins, Jess F.; Scheirer, Daniel S.; Fernandez, Diego P.; Gagnon, Alexander C.; Waller, Rhian G. (University of Miami - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, 2007-11-01)
    Deep-sea corals have grown for over 200,000 yrs on the New England Seamounts in the northwest Atlantic, and this paper describes their distribution both with respect to depth and time. Many thousands of fossil scleractinian ...
  • Environmental and biological controls on Mg and Li in deep-sea scleractinian corals 

    Case, David H.; Robinson, Laura F.; Auro, Maureen E.; Gagnon, Alexander C. (2010-09-06)
    Deep-sea scleractinian corals precipitate aragonite skeletons that provide valuable archives of past ocean conditions. During calcification biological mediation causes variability in trace metal incorporation and isotopic ...
  • Interlaboratory study for coral Sr/Ca and other element/Ca ratio measurements 

    Hathorne, Ed C.; Gagnon, Alexander C.; Felis, Thomas; Adkins, Jess F.; Asami, Ryuji; Boer, Wim; Caillon, Nicolas; Case, David H.; Cobb, Kim M.; Douville, Eric; deMenocal, Peter B.; Eisenhauer, Anton; Garbe-Schonberg, Dieter; Geibert, Walter; Goldstein, Steven L.; Hughen, Konrad A.; Inoue, Mayuri; Kawahata, Hodaka; Kolling, Martin; Cornec, Florence L.; Linsley, Braddock K.; McGregor, Helen V.; Montagna, Paolo; Nurhati, Intan S.; Quinn, Terrence M.; Raddatz, Jacek; Rebaubier, Helene; Robinson, Laura F.; Sadekov, Aleksey; Sherrell, Robert M.; Sinclair, Dan; Tudhope, Alexander W.; Wei, Gangjian; Wong, Henri; Wu, Henry C.; You, Chen-Feng (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-09-23)
    The Sr/Ca ratio of coral aragonite is used to reconstruct past sea surface temperature (SST). Twenty-one laboratories took part in an interlaboratory study of coral Sr/Ca measurements. Results show interlaboratory bias can ...
  • Primary U distribution in scleractinian corals and its implications for U series dating 

    Robinson, Laura F.; Adkins, Jess F.; Fernandez, Diego P.; Burnett, Donald S.; Wang, S.-L.; Gagnon, Alexander C.; Krakauer, Nir (American Geophysical Union, 2006-05-24)
    In this study we use microsampling techniques to explore diagenetic processes in carbonates. These processes are important as they can affect the accuracy of U series chronometry. Fission track maps of deep-sea scleractinian ...
  • Strong depth-related zonation of megabenthos on a rocky continental margin (∼700–4000 m) off southern Tasmania, Australia 

    Thresher, Ronald E.; Althaus, Franziska; Adkins, Jess F.; Gowlett-Holmes, Karen; Alderslade, Phil; Dowdney, Jo; Cho, Walter W.; Gagnon, Alexander C.; Staples, David; McEnnulty, Felicity; Williams, Alan (Public Library of Science, 2014-01-22)
    Assemblages of megabenthos are structured in seven depth-related zones between ~700 and 4000 m on the rocky and topographically complex continental margin south of Tasmania, southeastern Australia. These patterns emerge ...
