Pacific Alkenone Sea Surface Temperature Reconstruction
Entry ID: NOAA_NCDC_PALEO_2005-005

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Marine sediments from the Chilean continental margin are used to infer
millennial-scale changes in southeast Pacific surface ocean water properties
and Patagonian ice sheet extent since the last glacial period. Our data show a
clear "Antarctic" timing of sea surface temperature changes, which appear
systematically linked to meridional displacements in sea ice, westerly ... View entire text
