Abstract

Sr/Ca, B/Ca, Mg/Ca and delta B-11 were determined at high spatial resolution across similar to 1 year of a modern Hawaiian Porites lobata coral by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). We observe significant variations in B/Ca, Mg/Ca, Sr/Ca and delta B-11 over short skeletal distances (nominally equivalent to periods of
