Orbitally-paced climate evolution during the middle Miocene “ Monterey ” carbon-isotope excursion

  title={Orbitally-paced climate evolution during the middle Miocene “ Monterey ” carbon-isotope excursion},
  author={Ann Holbourn and Wolfgang Kuhnt and Michael Schulz and Jos{\'e}-Abel Flores and Nils Andersen},
One of the most enigmatic features of Cenozoic long-term climate evolution is the long-lasting positive carbon-isotope excursion or “Monterey Excursion”, which started during a period of global warmth after 16.9 Ma and ended at ∼13.5 Ma, approximately 400 kyr after major expansion of the Antarctic ice-sheet. We present high-resolution (1–9 kyr) astronomically-tuned climate proxy records in two complete sedimentary successions from the northwestern and southeastern Pacific (ODP Sites 1146 and… CONTINUE READING
