Geochemistry of a coral from Bermuda, supplement to: Kuhnert, Henning; Crüger, Traute; Pätzold, Jürgen (2005): NAO signature in a Bermuda coral Sr/Ca record. Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems, 6, Q04004

We present a 55-year-long record (1928-1982) of Sr/Ca in a Bermuda coral (Diploria strigosa), which we use to reconstruct local twentieth century climate features. The clearest climate signal emerges for the late-year Sr/Ca. Although the coral was collected in shallow water (12 m), the correlation with station data is highest for temperatures at 50 m depth (r = -0.70), suggesting that local temperatures at the collection site are not representative for the sea surface temperatures...
