 Determining Past Climates   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
The science of studying tree-rings is called "dendrochronology," which may be loosely translated as "tree history." In fact, in regions where no written documents are available the first (and commonly only) detailed record of climate change is from trees.
Coral growth rings are analogous to tree rings in that they are a biased report on conditions that are of interest to the organism.
Coral records are now being used to reconstruct the amplitudes and frequencies of El Niño events in the Pacific (see Figure 8.6.4).

 HBOI | Feature | Florida's Oculina Banks Deepwater Coral Reefs
Though concentrations of healthy coral and schooling fish have dramatically declined at the Oculina Banks since their discovery in 1975 by HARBOR BRANCH, a NOAA- funded spring 2003 cruise to explore the area's deepwater reefs revealed new information that bodes well for the future of this vital habitat.
Twenty-three large coral pinnacles were discovered outside the federally protected area between Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach in areas never before explored and that were not known to contain live coral before the new map was produced.
Its strong currents are thought to contribute to the growth of the coral, by trapping fine sand, mud and coral debris which act as habitat for dense populations of mollusks and crustaceans.

The Ivory Tree Coral, Oculina varicosa, occurs in depths of several meters to greater than 100 meters.
In shallow depths colonies are relatively small with stout club-like branches whereas in greater depths colonies may be up to several meters in diameter and clustered in a thicket-like habitat.
In depths of 50 m or greater Oculina varicosa lacks zooxanthellae, the symbiotic algae that gives corals their color and part of their nutrition; it is therefore white at these depths and relies solely on planktonic food.

Three quick comments: Wrapping plastic-coated wire around the tree will subject it to multiple girdling--an excellent way to kill the tree, whateverthe cause or reason for the split--don't do it.
If the tree is to regain structural integrity, considerable quantities of new wood must be created, enough to provide structural resistance to the various forces that confront a tree.
The cambium creates new wood at the rate of a ring a year (more or less)--no small task for anything--and the new growth must be mechanically useful without being broken again and starting the tree back at ground zero.
