Sea surface temperature variability and sea‐ice extent in the subarctic northwest Pacific during the past 15,000 years
Past changes in North Pacific sea surface temperatures and sea-ice conditions are proposed to play a crucial role in deglacial climate development and ocean circulation but are less well known thanExpand

Living benthic foraminifera of the Okhotsk Sea: Faunal composition, standing stocks and microhabitats
Live (Rose Bengal stained) benthic foraminifera were investigated in surface sediment samples from the Okhotsk Sea to reveal the relationship between faunal characteristics and environmentalExpand

Pulses of enhanced North Pacific Intermediate Water ventilation from the Okhotsk Sea and Bering Sea during the last deglaciation
Under modern conditions only North Pacific Intermediate Water is formed in the Northwest Pacific Ocean. This situation might have changed in the past. Recent studies with General Circulation ModelsExpand

Glacial reduction and millennial-scale variations in Drake Passage throughflow
Significance The Drake Passage (DP) represents the most important oceanic gateway along the pathway of the world’s largest current: the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). Resolving changes in theExpand

Laminated sediments in the Bering Sea reveal atmospheric teleconnections to Greenland climate on millennial to decadal timescales during the last deglaciation
Abstract. During the last glacial termination, the upper North Pacific Ocean underwent dramatic and rapid changes in oxygenation that lead to the transient intensification of oxygen minimum zonesExpand

Modern distribution of dinocysts from the North Pacific Ocean (37-64°N, 144°E-148°W) in relation to hydrographic conditions, sea-ice and productivity
Abstract Palynological analyses were performed on 53 surface sediment samples from the North Pacific Ocean, including the Bering and Okhotsk Seas (37–64°N, 144°E–148°W), in order to document theExpand

Deglacial development of (sub) sea surface temperature and salinity in the subarctic northwest Pacif
Based on models and proxy data, it has been proposed that salinity-driven stratification weakened in the subarctic North Pacific during the last deglaciation, which potentially contributed to theExpand

The Southern Ocean observing system: Initial science and implementation strategy
Executive Summary The Southern Ocean provides the principal connection between the Earth’s ocean basins and between the upper and lower layers of the global ocean circulation. As a result, theExpand

Pacific-Atlantic Circumpolar Deep Water coupling during the last 500 ka
Investigating the interbasin deepwater exchange between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans over glacial-interglacial climate cycles is important for understanding circum-Antarctic Southern OceanExpand

Deglacial mobilization of pre-aged terrestrial carbon from degrading permafrost
The mobilization of glacial permafrost carbon during the last glacial–interglacial transition has been suggested by indirect evidence to be an additional and significant source of greenhouse gases toExpand
