Coral reefs drilled offshore of Barbados provide the first continuous and detailed record of sea level change during the last deglaciation. The sea level was 121 ± 5 metres below present level during
Intcal04 Terrestrial Radiocarbon Age Calibration, 0–26 Cal Kyr BP
A new calibration curve for the conversion of radiocarbon ages to calibrated (cal) ages has been constructed and internationally ratified to replace IntCal98, which extended from 0–24 cal kyr BP
Unlocking the Ice House: Oligocene‐Miocene oxygen isotopes, eustasy, and margin erosion
Oxygen isotope records and glaciomarine sediments indicate at least an intermittent presence of large continental ice sheets on Antarctica since the earliest Oligocene (circa 35 Ma). The growth and
Marine04 Marine Radiocarbon Age Calibration, 0–26 Cal Kyr Bp
New radiocarbon calibration curves, IntCal04 and Marine04, have been constructed and internationally ratified to replace the terrestrial and marine components of IntCal98. The new calibration data
Deepwater source variations during the last climatic cycle and their impact on the global deepwater circulation
The degree of similarity of the ∂13C records of the planktonic foraminiferal species N. pachyderma and of the benthic foraminiferal genus Cibicides in the high-latitude basins of the world ocean is
Tertiary oxygen isotope synthesis, sea level history, and continental margin erosion
Tertiary benthic and planktonic foraminiferal oxygen isotope records are correlated to a standard geomagnetic polarity time scale, making use of improved chronostratigraphic control and additional
Calibration of the 14C timescale over the past 30,000 years using mass spectrometric U–Th ages from Barbados corals
Uranium–thorium ages obtained by mass spectrometry from corals raised off the island of Barbados confirm the high precision of this technique over at least the past 30,000 years. Comparison of the
U-Th ages obtained by mass spectrometry in corals from Barbados: sea level during the past 130,000 years
THE study of the sea level record during the last glacial cycle has primarily proceeded indirectly by means of oxygen isotope measurements on foraminifera from deep-sea sediments1,2. The direct
Early and Middle Miocene stable isotopes: Implications for Deepwater circulation and climate
The middle Miocene δ18O increase represents a fundamental change in the ocean-atmosphere system which, like late Pleistocene climates, may be related to deepwater circulation patterns. There has been
