  • Climate fluctuations during the past millennium are relatively well documented. On a longer timescale, there is growing evidence of millennial-scale variability of Holocene climate, at periodicities of ∼2,500 and 950 years (possibly caused by changes in solar flux), and ∼1,500 years (maybe related to an internal oscillation of the climate system),,. But the involvement of deep water masses in these Holocene climate changes has yet to be established. Here we use sediment grain-size data from the… CONTINUE READING
