Abstract: The recent efforts of the paleoceanographic community have
resulted in a unique set of reconstructed sea-surface temperature
for the Atlantic Ocean during the Last Glacial Maximum, plus estimates
for the extents of glacial sea ice (Sarnthein et al. 2003). Unlike
prior attempts, the contributing research groups based their data on
the definition of a common LGM chronozone and used the same ... View entire text
