Abstract:
Secas Island Coral d18O, used to reconstruct seasonal and interannual variability in the Intertropical Convergence Zone. Site Location: Secas Island, Gulf of Chiriqui, Panama, [7 deg 59 min N, 82 deg 3 min W]. Secas Island Coral (S1), collected live, June, 1984. 10/year and 12/year sampling with age model and isotope data as published in Linsley et al, 1994, JGR, vol 99, No. C5,pp 9977-9994, 1994. (10/year sampling was published).
