Purpose
The purpose of the proposed work is to generate high-resolution records of 
sea-level change in Bermuda over the last 2000 years using mangrove sediments 
and consolidated limestone sediments comprised largely of dead coral 
skeletons.This study will provide the first direct comparison of these 
independent approaches and an extended instrumental (tide gauge) record. This 
study will be the first to directly compare the two methods in the same location 
and will serve to validate them both. Additionally, high resolution records of 
sea-level change spanning the last 2000 years provide an appropriate context for 
current and predicted changes. Such reconstructions also provide important 
constraints on future projections of sea-level rise.
Information to be Derived
Coral species, Coral colony morphology, depth below water surface, position 
relative to sea level, Growth history
