Summary
Abstract: Planktonic foraminiferal d18O time series from three well-dated, high
sedimentation rate cores near the Florida Keys (24.4N, 83.3W) exhibit repeated
centennial to millennial-scale oscillations during the late Holocene. Isotopic
shifts of 0.2-0.3% over the past 5200 years represent changes in sea-surface
temperature (SST) of 1.0-1.5C or salinity variability of 1-2 psu. The largest
significant ... View entire text
