Summary
Abstract: Successful application of the alkenone palaeothermometer, the Uk37' index,
relies upon the assumption that fossil alkenone synthesisers responded to
growth-temperature changes in a similar manner to the modern producers,
chiefly the coccolithophores Emiliania huxleyi and Gephyrocapsa oceanica. We
compare coccolith and Uk37' from ODP Site 1087 in the south-east Atlantic
between 1500 and 500 ka, ... View entire text
