Climate instability during the last interglacial period recorded in the GRIP ice core

  author={Greenland Ice-core Project Members},
Isotope and chemical analyses of the GRIP ice core from Summit, central Greenland, reveal that climate in Greenland during the last interglacial period was characterized by a series of severe cold periods, which began extremely rapidly and lasted from decades to centuries. As the last interglacial seems to have been slightly warmer than the present one, its unstable climate raises questions about the effects of future global warming. 
High-resolution record of Northern Hemisphere climate extending into the last interglacial period
An undisturbed climate record from a North Greenland ice core, which extends back to 123,000 years before the present, within the last interglacial period, shows a slow decline in temperatures that marked the initiation of the last glacial period.
Millennial‐scale climatic change during the Last Interglacial Period: Superparamagnetic sediment proxy from Paleosol S1, western Chinese Loess Plateau
Detailed magnetic analyses of samples from the Jiuzhoutai well section on the western Chinese Loess Plateau reveal high‐resolution signals of summer monsoon change. The last interglacial period is

Records of eolian quartz from two continuous sediment sequences drilled in Lagaccione and Lago di Vico volcanic lakes in central Italy contribute to the knowledge of eolian deposition in the central
Recent marine and lake core studies in the Western Mediterranean Basin and Iberia have changed the traditional perception of Holocene climate change. Particularly important in this region, the 8,200
Pleistocene geochronologies for fluvial sedimentary sequences: an archaeologist's perspective
Current models of Pleistocene fluvial system development and dynamics are assessed from the perspective of European Lower and Middle Palaeolithic stone tool assemblages recovered from fluvial
Effects of melting ice sheets and orbital forcing on the early Holocene warming in the extratropical Northern Hemisphere
Abstract. The early Holocene is marked by the final transition from the last deglaciation to the relatively warm Holocene. Proxy-based temperature reconstructions suggest a Northern Hemisphere
Dansgaard—Oeschger cycles observed from the last glacial sediments in Lake Biwa and the Sea of Japan
Grain-size data of the last glacial period from Lake Biwa core samples are compared with diatom and loess abundances from sediments of the Sea of Japan (ODP: Ocean Drilling Program). In the cold
The δ18O record along the Greenland Ice Core Project deep ice core and the problem of possible Eemian climatic instability
Over 70,000 samples from the 3029-m-long Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) ice core drilled on the top of the Greenland Ice Sheet (Summit) have been analyzed for δ8O. A highly detailed and continuous
