Summary
Abstract: Data set consists of carbonate and stable isotope data across the Eocene
"Greenhouse-Icehouse" climate transition, from tropical Pacific ODP cores 1218
and 1219, and calculated Calcite Compensation Depth and 0% isopleth depth.

The transition from the extreme global warmth of the early Eocene 'greenhouse'
climate, ~55 million years ago to the present glaciated state is one of the
most prominent ... View entire text
