6k North Atlantic Sea-Surface Temperatures

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The 6k data are based on two types of data: 1) alkenones, a geochemical proxy,
and 2) transfer function estimates of sea-surface temperature based on faunal
assemblages of planktic foraminifers. All alkenone data have previously been
compiled within the GHOST project (Kim et al., 2004a,b)
(http://www.pangaea.de/Projects/GHOST/). For the foraminiferal data, raw census
data were composed and two ... View entire text
