Summary
Abstract: The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) has been attributed to a rapid
rise in greenhouse gas levels. If so, warming should have occurred at all
latitudes, although amplified toward the poles. Existing records reveal an
increase in high-latitude sea surface temperatures (SSTs) (8 to 10C) and in
bottom water temperatures (4 to 5C). To date, however, the character of the
tropical SST ... View entire text
