Deepwater circulation on Blake Outer Ridge ( western North Atlantic ) during the Holocene , Younger Dryas , and Last Glacial Maximum

  title={Deepwater circulation on Blake Outer Ridge ( western North Atlantic ) during the Holocene , Younger Dryas , and Last Glacial Maximum},
  author={Helena K. Evans},
[1] Three depth transects containing a total of 33 sediment cores were investigated along the Blake Outer Ridge in the western subtropical North Atlantic. Sortable silt mean (SS) grain size and stable isotope records were used to assess the position and relative intensity of the Western Boundary Undercurrent (WBUC) during the Holocene, the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), and the Younger Dryas (YD) intervals. The Holocene reconstruction is consistent with modern physical and chemical hydrographic… CONTINUE READING
