Summary
Abstract: Magnesium/calcium data from Southern Ocean planktonic foraminifera demonstrate
that high-latitude (~55°S) southwest Pacific sea surface temperatures (SSTs)
cooled 6° to 7°C during the middle Miocene climate transition (14.2 to 13.8
million years ago). Stepwise surface cooling is paced by eccentricity forcing
and precedes Antarctic cryosphere expansion by ~60 thousand years, suggesting
the ... View entire text
