Summary
Abstract: Mg/Ca ratios in the planktonic foraminifera Globigerinoides ruber from
Colombian Basin core ODP 999A suggest that Caribbean sea surface temperatures
(SSTs) were from 2.1 to 2.7C colder than the present during the last three
glacial maximums. In comparison, faunal derived SSTs (SIMMAX method) show that
August SSTs in the Caribbean varied <2C over the past 360 kyr, whereas
February SSTs ... View entire text
