Formatted abstract
Coral reefs, excellent archives for the environmental history of tropical oceans, are widely distributed in the South China Sea (SCS), which is the biggest enclosed marginal sea of the western Pacific, covering over 16° in latitude and different climate conditions. The total area of the coral reefs in the SCS is about 7,300 km2, ~2.5% of the world’s coral reefs (Zhang et al., 2005). Recent research in the SCS focuses mainly on coral-based high-resolution climate reconstruction and coral reef ecological responses using geochemical and U-series geochronological tools, which reveal further potential for understanding of Holocene climate processes and events.
