Short summary
This study is part of a larger community effort to catalogue the elevation of sea levels approximately 120 000 years ago – a time period when global temperatures were generally warmer than they are today. For this specific study I summarized the work of other scientists who had determined the age and elevations of ancient shorelines and coral reefs from across the Gulf of Mexico and Yucatán Peninsula.
