Across the middle Miocene, Earth's climate underwent a major cooling and expansion of the Antarctic ice sheet. However, the associated response and development of the tropical climate system is not fully understood, in part because this is influenced by both global climate and also low‐latitude tectonic gateways and paleoceanography. Here we use combined δ18O and Mg/Ca of planktic foraminifera to reconstruct the thermal history and changes in hydrology from the Indo‐Pacific region from 16.5 to… 
Temperature Gradients Across the Pacific Ocean During the Middle Miocene
Sea surface temperatures (SSTs) of the tropical Pacific Ocean exert powerful controls on regional and global climates. Previous studies have suggested that during warm climate phases, the east‐west
Atmospheric carbon dioxide variations across the middle Miocene climate transition
Abstract. The middle Miocene climate transition ∼  14 Ma marks a fundamental step towards the current “ice-house” climate, with a ∼  1 ‰ δ18 O increase and a ∼  1 ‰ transient δ13 C rise in the deep

Tropical Sea Surface Temperatures Following the Middle Miocene Climate Transition From Laser‐Ablation ICP‐MS Analysis of Glassy Foraminifera
The mid‐to‐late Miocene is proposed as a key interval in the transition of the Earth's climate state toward that of the modern‐day. However, it remains a poorly understood interval in the evolution
The Miocene: The Future of the Past
The Miocene epoch (23.03–5.33 Ma) was a time interval of global warmth, relative to today. Continental configurations and mountain topography transitioned toward modern conditions, and many flora and
Mid-Miocene Lake Level Fluctuations in the Lunpola Basin, Central Tibetan Plateau
Knowledge of paleolake evolution is highly important for understanding the past hydroclimate regime on the Tibetan Plateau and associated forcing mechanisms. However, the hydrological history of

A User Guide for Choosing Planktic Foraminiferal Mg/Ca‐Temperature Calibrations
Although foraminiferal magnesium/calcium (Mg/Ca) measurements are now widely used for reconstructing sea surface temperature (SST), there is uncertainty about the fidelity of different calibrations

Southern Ocean warming and Wilkes Land ice sheet retreat during the mid-Miocene
TLDR
It is suggested that the mid-Miocene latitudinal temperature gradient across the Southern Ocean never resembled that of the present day and that the East Antarctic subglacial basins were highly sensitive to ocean warming.
Middle Miocene climate cooling linked to intensification of eastern equatorial Pacific upwelling
During the Middle Miocene, Earth's climate transitioned from a relatively warm phase (Miocene climatic optimum) to a colder mode with reestablishment of permanent ice sheets on Antarctica, thus
CO2 drawdown following the middle Miocene expansion of the Antarctic Ice Sheet
The development of a permanent, stable ice sheet in East Antarctica happened during the middle Miocene, about 14 Myr (million years) ago. The middle Miocene therefore represents one of the distinct
