Physical environmental data from 1989 – 2013 are were recorded using in situ data loggers, weather stations and data buoys, to provide seawater temperature data (1989 – 2013) and rainfall (1987 – 2013). Maximum/ minimum tmeoperatrue, nr of hot/cold days are reported. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

Exploring the oxygen and carbon isotopic composition of the Mediterranean red coral (Corallium rubrum) for seawater temperature reconstruction Chaabane, Sonia; Lopez Correa, Matthias; Montagna, Paolo; Kallel, Nejib; Taviani, Marco; Linares, Cristina; Ziveri, Patrizia (2016-07)Here we provide first evidence that the stable oxygen and carbon isotopic composition (δ18O, δ13C) of the high-magnesium calcite skeleton red coral Corallium rubrum can be used as a reliable seawater temperature proxy. ...
