Decline of surface temperature and salinity in the western tropical Pacific Ocean in the Holocene epoch
TLDR
The data imply either that the Pacific basin as a whole has become progressively less salty or that the present salinity gradient along the Equator has developed relatively recently.
CLIMATICALLY RELATED MILLENNIAL-SCALE FLUCTUATIONS IN STRENGTH OF CALIFORNIA MARGIN OXYGEN-MINIMUM ZONE DURING THE PAST 60 K.Y
A strong oxygen-minimum zone (OMZ) currently exists along the California margin because of a combination of high surface-water productivity and poor intermediate-water ventilation. However, the
PLIOCENE-PLEISTOCENE EVOLUTION OF EASTERN TROPICAL PACIFIC SURFACE WATER CIRCULATION AND THERMOCLINE DEPTH
We evaluated the response of eastern equatorial Pacific upper water column hydrography to the Panama seaway closure and the initiation of large-scale northern hemisphere glaciation, The δ18O gradient
Variability of Southwest Indian summer monsoon precipitation during the Bølling-Ållerød
We have generated a high-resolution (<20 yr) 2 3 0 Th-dated stalagmite oxygen isotope record from Timta Cave in the western Himalaya in India that documents Southwest Indian summer monsoon (ISM)
Methane hydrates in Quaternary climate change : the clathrate gun hypothesis
The bookshelf methane hydrates in quaternary climate. methane hydrates in quaternary climate change the. the interaction of climate change and methane hydrates is. large submarine landslides on
A 900‐year (600 to 1500 A.D.) record of the Indian summer monsoon precipitation from the core monsoon zone of India
We present a near‐annually resolved record of the Indian summer monsoon (ISM) rainfall variations for the core monsoon region of India that spans from 600 to 1500 A.D. from a 230Th‐dated stalagmite
Biotic response to late Quaternary rapid climate switches in Santa Barbara Basin: Ecological and evolutionary implications
Benthic foraminiferal assemblages from Santa Barbara Basin exhibit major faunal and ecological switches associated with late Quaternary millennial- to decadal-scale global climate oscillations.
On the preservation of laminated sediments along the western margin of North America
[1] Piston, gravity, and multicores as well as hydrographic data were collected along the Pacific margin of Baja California to reconstruct past variations in the intensity of the oxygen-minimum zone
