I recommend a scan of recent issues of Paleoceanography to start you on your
literature search.  some recent papers include:

Wellington, G. M., R. B. Dunbar, et al. (1996). "Calibration of stable oxygen
isotope signatures in Galapagos corals." Paleoceanography 11(4): 467-480.

Allison, N., A. Tudhope, et al. (1996). "Factors influencing the stable carbon
and oxygen isotopic composition of Porites lutea coral skeletons from Phuket,
South Thailand." Coral Reefs 15(1): 43-57.

Slowey, N. C. and T. J. Crowley (1995). "Interdecadal variability of Northern
Hemisphere circulation recorded by Gulf of Mexico corals." Geophysical
Research Letters 22(17): 2345-2348.

Cabioch, G., L. Montaggioni, et al. (1995). "Holocene initiation and
development of New Caledonian fringing reefs, SW Pacific." Coral Reefs 14(3):

Kan, H., N. Hori, et al. (1995). "The evolution of narrow reef flats at
high-latitude in the Ryukyu Islands." Coral Reefs 14(3): 123-?

Dunbar, R. B., G. M. Wellington, et al. (1994). "Eastern Pacific sea surface
temperature since 1600 A.D.: the d18O record of climate variability in
Galapagos corals." Paleoceanography 9(2): 291-315.

Edwards, R. L., J. W. Beck, et al. (1993). "A large drop in atmospheric
14C/12C and reduced, melting in the Younger Dryas, documented with 230Th ages
of corals." Science 260(May 14): 962-968.

Also, several paleoclimatic data sets generated from corals are available from
the World Data Center for Paleoclimatology at:

	I'm trying to locate information on the use of sclerochronology
in Quaternary paleoclimate studies.  Any references or pointers to sites
would be appreciated.
