Abstract

Isotopic analysis of corals is known to be a useful tool to study the interannual variability of the tropical ocean and its interaction with the atmosphere. Oxygen isotopic records of corals from the Indian Ocean have been shown to respond to the interannual variability, such as, monsoon and dipolar characteristics of the Indian Ocean. These variabilities also get modulated by the Pacific Ocean climate, i.e. ENSO. Modeling work based on observational data and coral based proxy records have been used to study these processes. A comparative analysis of these two methods has been presented revealing the agreement and disagreement between the two approaches.
