An agemodel not relying upon orbital assumptions is estimated over the last 2Ma using depth in marine sediment cores as a proxy for time. Agemodel uncertainty averages !10Ka in the early Pleistocene ("2–1Ma) and !7Ka in the late Pleistocene ("1Ma to the present). Twelve benthic and five planktic d O records are pinned to the agemodel and averaged together to provide a record of glacial variability. Major deglaciation features are identified over the last 2Ma and a remarkable 33 out of 36 occur… CONTINUE READING
