Summary
Abstract: New radialarian-based transfer functions for estimating SST and annual SST
ranges. 170 sediment samples were used with 41 species of radiolarians using
a standardized taxonomy. Seven assemblages were identified corresponding to
the tropical, transitional, Antarctic, Bering Sea, western Pacific, central
gyre, and eastern boundary current oceanographic regions. SST cooling at the
Last Glacial Maximum is estimated to be greater than the CLIMAP estimates.
