This data release compiles Uranium-Thorium (U-Th) dating data for late Holocene coral samples collected from the Nearshore Ridge Complex (NRC) off Pompano Beach, Southeast Florida (SEFL; Figure 1). The samples were collected under Scientific Activity Licenses (SAL) from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (SAL-18-1659A-SRP) and with permission from Broward County Environmental Protection and Growth Management. These data were collected for a series of studies (Modys and others, 2022; 2023) aimed at evaluating the timing and palaeoecological implications of late Holocene reef development in southeast Florida.
