Impacts of orbital forcing and atmospheric carbon dioxide on Miocene ice-sheet expansion
The processes causing the middle Miocene global cooling, which marked the Earth's final transition into an ‘icehouse’ climate about 13.9 million years ago (Myr ago), remain enigmatic. TectonicallyExpand

Orbitally-paced climate evolution during the middle Miocene “Monterey” carbon-isotope excursion
One of the most enigmatic features of Cenozoic long-term climate evolution is the long-lasting positive carbon-isotope excursion or "Monterey Excursion", which started during a period of globalExpand

Neogene History of the Indonesian Throughflow
The Indonesian Throughflow acts as a major switchboard in the global thermohaline circulation, and its variability is strongly related to tropical climate dynamics on shorter and longer timescales.Expand

Middle Miocene climate cooling linked to intensification of eastern equatorial Pacific upwelling
During the Middle Miocene, Earth's climate transitioned from a relatively warm phase (Miocene climatic optimum) to a colder mode with reestablishment of permanent ice sheets on Antarctica, thusExpand

Changes in the thermocline structure of the Indonesian outflow during Terminations I and II
We present centennial records of sea surface and upper thermocline temperatures in Core MD01-2378 from the Timor Sea, which provide new insights into the variability of the Indonesian outflow acrossExpand

Cyclicity of Cenomanian-Turonian organic-carbon-rich sedimentation in the Tarfaya coastal basin (Morocco)
Abstract Density logs from six completely cored and logged exploration wells across the Cenomanian-Turonian boundary in the Tarfaya Basin (Morocco) reveal cyclic sedimentation patterns of differentExpand

Middle to late Miocene stepwise climate cooling: Evidence from a high-resolution deep water isotope curve spanning 8 million years
[1] We present high-resolution (2–3 kyr) benthic foraminiferal stable isotopes in a continuous, well-preserved sedimentary archive from the West Pacific Ocean (Ocean Drilling Program Site 1146),Expand

Black shale deposition on the northwest African Shelf during the Cenomanian/Turonian oceanic anoxic event: Climate coupling and global organic carbon burial
High-resolution geochemical records from a depth transect through the Cenomanian/Turonian (C/T) Tarfaya Basin (northwest African Shelf) reveal high-amplitude fluctuations in accumulation rates ofExpand

Fundamental Modes and Abrupt Changes in North Atlantic Circulation and Climate over the last 60 ky - Concepts, Reconstruction and Numerical Modeling
Centennial- to millennial-scale changes in global climate over the last 60 ky were first documented in ice cores from Greenland, with ice sheets around the North Atlantic and its thermohalineExpand
