Summary
Abstract: Detailed deglacial and Holocene records of planktonic d18O and Mg/Ca based
sea surface temperature (SST) from the Okinawa Trough suggest that at ~18
to 17 thousand years before present (kyr B.P.), late spring/early summer
SSTs were approximately 3C cooler than today, while surface waters were up
to 1 practical salinity unit saltier. These conditions are consistent with
a weaker influence of ... View entire text
