Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of how to use coral microatolls to reconstruct a history of relative sea level for a site. We discuss the utility and limitations of microatolls; considerations for site and sample selection; field techniques; documentation strategies; slab processing, analysis, and interpretation; dating; and vertical accuracy, sources of error, and indicative meaning. We also include a note on permit considerations.
