PALSEA2 French Polynesia paper

palsea img nat com jan 18Members of the PALSEA2 working group recently published a paper in Nature Communications on past sea level in French Polynesia, citing the region as ideal for paleo sea-level studies for extracting accurate information on the melting history of ice sheets.

Led by Nadine Hallman, the authors reconstruct a high-resolution sea-level curve encompassing the last 6000 years based on a comprehensive study of coral microatolls, which are sensitive low-tide recorders.
