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 2.7°C 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 <2°C over the past 360 kyr, whereas
February SSTs ... View entire text
