Persistent Solar Influence on North Atlantic Climate During the Holocene
Surface winds and surface ocean hydrography in the subpolar North Atlantic appear to have been influenced by variations in solar output through the entire Holocene. The evidence comes from a closeExpand

A Pervasive Millennial-Scale Cycle in North Atlantic Holocene and Glacial Climates
Evidence from North Atlantic deep sea cores reveals that abrupt shifts punctuated what is conventionally thought to have been a relatively stable Holocene climate. During each of these episodes,Expand

Evidence for general instability of past climate from a 250-kyr ice-core record
RECENT results1,2 from two ice cores drilled in central Greenland have revealed large, abrupt climate changes of at least regional extent during the late stages of the last glaciation, suggestingExpand

Correlations between climate records from North Atlantic sediments and Greenland ice
OXYGEN isotope measurements in Greenland ice demonstrate that a series of rapid warm-cold oscillations—called Dansgaard–Oeschger events—punctuated the last glaciation1. Here we present records of seaExpand

Iceberg Discharges into the North Atlantic on Millennial Time Scales During the Last Glaciation
High-resolution studies of North Atlantic deep sea cores demonstrate that prominent increases in iceberg calving recurred at intervals of 2000 to 3000 years, much more frequently than the 7000-toExpand

Evidence for massive discharges of icebergs into the North Atlantic ocean during the last glacial period
SEDIMENTS in the North Atlantic ocean contain a series of layers that are rich in ice-rafted debris and unusually poor in foraminifera1. Here we present evidence that the most recent six of theseExpand

Ash layers from Iceland in the Greenland GRIP ice core correlated with oceanic and land sediments
Four previously known ash layers (Ash Zones I and II, Saksunarvatn and the Settlement layer) all originating in Iceland, have been identified in the Central Greenland ice core GRIP. This correlationExpand

Cyclic Variation and Solar Forcing of Holocene Climate in the Alaskan Subarctic
High-resolution analyses of lake sediment from southwestern Alaska reveal cyclic variations in climate and ecosystems during the Holocene. These variations occurred with periodicities similar toExpand

Breakup of a supercontinent between 625 Ma and 555 Ma: new evidence and implications for continental histories
Abstract A method developed recently for constructing tectonic subsidence curves in early Paleozoic miogeoclines has produced new evidence for the breakup of a late Proterozoic supercontinent.Expand

High-resolution climate records from the North Atlantic during the last interglacial
THE two deep ice cores recovered by the GRIP1 and GISP22 projects at Summit, Greenland, agree in detail over the past 100,000 years3 and demonstrate dramatic climate variability in the North AtlanticExpand
