Southern Ocean and Global Dinoflagellate Cyst Events Compared: Index Events for the Late Cretaceous–Neogene
Late Cretaceous to Quaternary organic walled dinoflagellate cyst (dinocyst) events were recognized at two sites offshore Tasmania during Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 189. DetailedExpand

Global Cooling During the Eocene-Oligocene Climate Transition
About 34 million years ago, Earth's climate shifted from a relatively ice-free world to one with glacial conditions on Antarctica characterized by substantial ice sheets. How Earth's temperatureExpand

Subtropical Arctic Ocean temperatures during the Palaeocene/Eocene thermal maximum
The Palaeocene/Eocene thermal maximum, ∼55 million years ago, was a brief period of widespread, extreme climatic warming, that was associated with massive atmospheric greenhouse gas input. AlthoughExpand

Timing and nature of the deepening of the Tasmanian Gateway
[1] Tectonic changes that produced a deep Tasmanian Gateway between Australia and Antarctica are widely invoked as the major mechanism for Antarctic cryosphere growth and Antarctic CircumpolarExpand

Late Jurassic to earliest Cretaceous palaeoclimatic evolution of the southern North Sea
Abstract Quantitative sporomorph data of five wells from the southern Central Graben (offshore, The Netherlands) and from two wells and an outcrop section from East Anglia (onshore, UK) are used toExpand

Late Eocene to Early Oligocene dinoflagellate cysts from the Priabonian type-area (Northeast Italy): biostratigraphy and paleoenvironmental interpretation
Abstract Marginal marine Late Eocene through Early Oligocene dinoflagellate cyst successions have been studied from the type area of the Priabonian Stage (northeast Italy). The results allow theExpand

Extreme warming of mid-latitude coastal ocean during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum: Inferences from TEX86 and isotope data
Changes in sea surface temperature (SST) during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Max- imum (PETM) have been estimated primarily from oxygen isotope and Mg/Ca records generated from deep-sea cores. HereExpand

Early Palaeogene temperature evolution of the southwest Pacific Ocean
Relative to the present day, meridional temperature gradients in the Early Eocene age (∼56–53 Myr ago) were unusually low, with slightly warmer equatorial regions but with much warmer subtropicalExpand

The early Miocene onset of a ventilated circulation regime in the Arctic Ocean
Deep-water formation in the northern North Atlantic Ocean and the Arctic Ocean is a key driver of the global thermohaline circulation and hence also of global climate. Deciphering the history of theExpand
