Summary
Abstract: A tropical Pacific climate state resembling that of a permanent El Nino is
hypothesized to have ended as a result of a reorganization of the ocean heat
budget ~3 million years ago, a time when large ice sheets appeared in the high
latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. We report a high resolution alkenone
reconstruction of conditions in the heart of the eastern equatorial Pacific
(EEP) cold ... View entire text
