The latest developments of studies on coral skeleton were compiled in this volume in order to understand the climatic and ocean environmental changes in low-latitude oceans. Recently, high-precession measurement of skeletal oxygen isotope ratios combined with Sr/Ca thermometry has become known as one of the promising methods for reconstruction of paleo-seawater temperature and water budget including rainfall, evaporation and deep-water upwelling. These parameters are closely related to El Niño-Southen Oscillation (ENSO) and Asian monsoon. New proxies for climatic and/or ocean environmental records will promote our understanding of the earth's surface environments.
