Insolation-driven changes in atmospheric circulation over the past 116,000 years in subtropical Brazil
During the last glacial period, large millennial-scale temperature oscillations—the ‘Dansgaard/Oeschger’ cycles—were the primary climate signal in Northern Hemisphere climate archives from the highExpand

Intercalibration of astronomical and radioisotopic time
The 40Ar/39Ar radioisotopic dating technique is one of the most precise and versatile methods available for dating events in Earth's history, but the accuracy of this method is limited by theExpand

Stratigraphy and chronology of Upper Cretaceous–lower Paleogene strata in Bolivia and northwest Argentina
Integration of sequence stratigraphy, magnetostratigraphy, Ar/Ar dating, and paleontology considerably advances knowledge of the Late Cretaceous–early Paleogene chronostratigraphy and tectonicExpand

50-Ma Initiation of Hawaiian-Emperor Bend Records Major Change in Pacific Plate Motion
The Hawaiian-Emperor bend has played a prominent yet controversial role in deciphering past Pacific plate motions and the tempo of plate motion change. New ages for volcanoes of the central andExpand

Alder Creek sanidine (ACs-2): A Quaternary 40Ar/39Ar dating standard tied to the Cobb Mountain geomagnetic event
Accurate 40Ar/39Ar dating of Quaternary and Holocene samples requires a standard (neutron fluence monitor) of appropriate age. This standard should be isotopically homogenous at the scale ofExpand

Reconstruction of regional atmospheric circulation features during the late Pleistocene in subtropical Brazil from oxygen isotope composition of speleothems
Two high-resolution oxygen isotope records of speleothems from caves located in subtropical Brazil provide a broad view of regional climate variations and related forcing during the late PleistoceneExpand

A stalagmite record of changes in atmospheric circulation and soil processes in the Brazilian subtropics during the Late Pleistocene
We present a high-resolution, 116,000-year carbon stable isotope record from a stalagmite from southern Brazil, which has been precisely dated using the U-series method. Evaluation of carbon andExpand

Evidence of rainfall variations in Southern Brazil from trace element ratios (Mg/Ca and Sr/Ca) in a Late Pleistocene stalagmite
Trace element ratios in the Bt2 stalagmite from Botuveracave, Southern Brazil, are explored as a proxy for changes in the local rainfall recharge during the last 116 ky. BP Mg/Ca and Sr/Ca ratios,Expand

Differential incision of the Grand Canyon related to Quaternary faulting—Constraints from U-series and Ar/Ar dating
Incision of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, widely thought to have happened between ca. 6 and 1.2 Ma, has continued at variable rates along the canyon over the past ;500 k.y., based onExpand

A threshold in soil formation at Earth's arid-hyperarid transition
The soils of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile have long been known to contain large quantities of unusual salts, yet the processes that form these soils are not yet fully understood. We examinedExpand
