Antarctic Ice Core Deglacial Water Isotope Composite Record on GICC05
Entry ID: deglacial_water_isotope_composite_gicc05

Abstract: Precise information on the relative timing of north-south climate variations is a key to resolving questions concerning the mechanisms that force and couple climate changes between the hemispheres. We present a new composite record made from five well-resolved Antarctic ice core records that robustly represents the timing of regional Antarctic climate change during the last deglaciation.
