Rapid Acidification of the Ocean During the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum
TLDR
Geochemical data from five new South Atlantic deep-sea sections indicate that a large mass of carbon dissolved in the ocean at the Paleocene-Eocene boundary and that permanent sequestration of this carbon occurred through silicate weathering feedback. Expand
Vigorous exchange between the Indian and Atlantic oceans at the end of the past five glacial periods
TLDR
The reconstruction indicates that Indian–Atlantic water exchange was highly variable: enhanced during present and past interglacials and largely reduced during glacial intervals, suggesting a crucial role for Agulhas leakage in glacial terminations, timing of interhemispheric climate change and the resulting resumption of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation.

Astronomical pacing of late Palaeocene to early Eocene global warming events
TLDR
A distinct carbonate-poor red clay layer in deep-sea cores from Walvis ridge is reported, which is term the Elmo horizon, which has similar geochemical and biotic characteristics as the Palaeocene–Eocene thermal maximum, but of smaller magnitude, suggesting that it represents a second global thermal maximum.

ONSET OF MONSOONAL RELATED UPWELLING IN THE WESTERN ARABIAN SEA AS REVEALED BY PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFERS
Quantitative analysis of the late Cenozoic planktonic foraminiferal record from western Arabian Sea Site 722 revealed long term trends in the history of oceanography and climate. The modern westernExpand
13. ONSET OF MONSOONAL RELATED UPWELLING IN THE WESTERN ARABIAN SEA AS REVEALED BY PLANKTONIC FORAMINIFERS1
Quantitative analysis of the late Cenozoic planktonic foraminiferal record from western Arabian Sea Site 722 revealed long term trends in the history of oceanography and climate. The modern westernExpand
Oxygen isotope and sapropel stratigraphy in the Eastern Mediterranean during the last 3.2 million years
Stable oxygen isotope data from four holes drilled at the Ocean Drilling Program Site 967, which is located on the lower northern slope of the Eratosthenes Seamount, provide a continuous record ofExpand
Planktonic foraminifera stable isotopes and water column structure: Disentangling ecological signals
Differential carbon and oxygen stable isotope (δ13C and δ18O) fractionation between planktonic foraminifera test calcite and sea water related to ecology and life stage confound the potential forExpand
Stepwise Holocene aridification in NE Africa deduced from dust-borne radiogenic isotope records
Abstract Transfer of tropical heat to higher latitudes is the major driving force of the Earth’s climate. Consequently, sediments in regions to the north and south of the tropics potentially retainExpand
Variations in tropical convection as an amplifier of global climate change at the millennial scale [rapid communication]
The global expression of millennial-scale climatic change during the glacial period and the persistence of this signal in Holocene records point to atmospheric teleconnections as the mechanismExpand
Exploring high-end scenarios for local sea level rise to develop flood protection strategies for a low-lying delta—the Netherlands as an example
Sea level rise, especially combined with possible changes in storm surges and increased river discharge resulting from climate change, poses a major threat in low-lying river deltas. In this study weExpand
