AbstractStrontium to calcium (Sr/Ca) ratios in annual bands of Porites corals are commonly used as past sea surface temperature proxy in tropical oceans, whereas studies that refer to Sr/Ca-SST calibration in high-latitude corals are rather rare in general. Here we present a 50-year (1961-2010) near-fortnightly Sr/Ca record in two Porites lutea corals living near the northern limit of reef-building corals in the subtropical northern South China Sea, where winter temperatures are extreme for hermatypic corals. The Sr/Ca time series shows a clear annual cyclicity, with marked sharp/narrow winter peaks. Comparison with an instrumental SST record (since 1961) indicates that this Sr/Ca record is chiefly modulated by SST. Two different methods are discussed for calibrating Sr/Ca with SST. The correlation between interpolated Sr/Ca and SST is significant, but the coefficient is relatively low, mainly attributed to extreme cold winter SSTs (
