Assessing subsidence rates and paleo water-depths for Tahiti reefs using U-Th chronology of altered corals

Abstract:

We present uranium-thorium chronology for a 102m core through a Pleistocene reef at Tahiti (French Polynesia) sampled during IODP Expedition 310 "Tahiti Sea Level". We employ total and partial dissolution procedures on the older coral samples to investigate the diagenetic overprint of the uranium-thorium system. Although alteration of the U-Th system cannot be robustly corrected, diagenetic trends in the U-Th data, combined with sea level and subsidence constraints for the growth of the coral...
