A record of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration during the transition from the Last Glacial Maximum to the Holocene, obtained from the Dome Concordia, Antarctica, ice core, reveals that an increase of 76 parts per million by volume occurred over a period of 6000 years in four clearly distinguishable intervals. The close correlation between CO2(More)
and to the warming interval after the ACR in Antarctica. Data from Vostok suggest an important role of the Southern Ocean in regulating the glacial-interglacial CO 2 changes (5). This role is confirmed by measurements from Tay-lor Dome for shorter time intervals in the last glaciation (16). The CO 2 increase in interval I, which occurred before any(More)
of the inhomogenity of the signals (on the order of Ϯ1000 years) but distinct. Because of the different nature of the Greenland and Antarctic signals , the age shift for the correlation maximum is smaller than that resulting from comparing the timing of initial warming in both records.
