Annual records of ice core δD values from the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 core define a temporally ordered normal distribution over an interval of 686 yr (AD 1300–1985) about a mean value of \documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \usepackage[OT2,OT1]{fontenc} \newcommand\cyr… Expand
Inequality in paleorecords.
It is shown that the sum of madograms for all possible time-series lags is encapsulated by a single parameter, the Gini coefficient, which has long been used by econometricians, social scientists, and ecologists as a synthetic, quantitative measure of inequality and diversity. Expand


The climate signal in the stable isotopes of snow from Summit, Greenland: Results of comparisons with modern climate observations
Recent efforts to link the isotopic composition of snow in Greenland with meteorological and climatic parameters have indicated that relatively local information such as observed annual temperaturesExpand
Characterization of Millennial-Scale Climate Variability
The oxygen isotope time series from ice cores in central Greenland [the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 (GISP2) and the Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP)] and West Antarctica (Byrd) provide a basis forExpand
The GISP2 δ18O Climate Record of the Past 16,500 Years and the Role of the Sun, Ocean, and Volcanoes
Measured 18O/16O ratios from the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 (GISP2) ice core extending back to 16,500 cal yr B.P. provide a continuous record of climate change since the last glaciation.Expand
Reconstructing annual and seasonal climatic responses from volcanic events since A.D. 1270 as recorded in the deuterium signal from the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 ice core
A 200 m ice core at the GISP 2 site (Summit, Greenland) provides a 720 year record of volcanic eruptions, identified by pronounced increases in SO42− in relation to the background concentration.Expand
A multicentury stable isotope record from a New Caledonia coral: Interannual and decadal sea surface temperature variability in the southwest Pacific since 1657 A.D
A 335 year stable isotope record from a New Caledonia coral (22°S, 166°E) helps fill a large gap in historical climate reconstructions. Although the long-term coral δ18O-based sea surface temperatureExpand
Aspects of climate variability in the North Atlantic sector: Discussion and relation to the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 high‐resolution isotopic signal
This paper reviews aspects of climate variability in the North Atlantic sector that may influence the seasonal to decadal scale isotopic signal in the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 (GISP2) ice core.Expand
Decadal to millennial-scale periodicities in North Iceland shelf sediments over the last 12 000 cal yr: long-term North Atlantic oceanographic variability and solar forcing
Giant piston core MD99-2269 recovered 25 m of sediment in Hunafloaall, a deep trough on the North Iceland margin fronting the Iceland Sea, and the site of a shelf sediment drift. The rate of sedimentExpand
Evidence for general instability of past climate from a 250-kyr ice-core record
RECENT results1,2 from two ice cores drilled in central Greenland have revealed large, abrupt climate changes of at least regional extent during the late stages of the last glaciation, suggestingExpand
Oxygen 18/16 variability in Greenland snow and ice with 10 -3- to 105-year time resolution
The 3-km-long Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 (GISP2) ice core presents a 100,000 +- year detailed oxygen isotope profile covering almost a full glacial-interglacial cycle. Measuranents of isotopicExpand
The Time Period A.D. 1400–1980 in Central Greenland Ice Cores in Relation to the North Atlantic Sector
This paper presents a review of the time period A.D. 1400–1980 based on Greenland ice cores from the central west Greenland averaged record, and from winter and summer seasonal isotopic records fromExpand
