Summary
Abstract: An early Holocene record from the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) reveals climatic and
hydrologic changes during the interval from 10.5 to 7 thousand calendar years
before present from paired analyses of Mg/Ca and d18O on foraminiferal
calcite. The sea surface temperature record based on foraminiferal Mg/Ca
contains six oscillations and an overall ~1.5°C warming that appears to be
similar to the ... View entire text
