These photographic images were obtained to document and describe the six coral cores collected during a field expedition to Dry Tortugas National Park (DRTO) from May 8 to 17, 2012. These cores can be used for analyzing past coral-growth rates and retroactive sampling of coral skeletal material deposited over at least the past century. The purpose of sampling these cores is to uncover and understand the relationship between coral growth and various environmental variables, as well as to paleoreconstruct variables such as sea-surface temperature. Using corals as paleorecorders can extend scientific records of ocean temperature further back in time than those measured by human observers or satellites.
