Mountain uplift and the glaciation of North America - a sensitivity study
Abstract. The Miocene (~24 to ~5 million years ago) was a period of relative global warmth compared to the Quaternary (~2 million years ago to present; e.g. Zachos et al., 2001) and was characterised

Estimating Cenozoic ice volume from deep-sea records
Introduction The use of geochemical records from deep-sea sites has been an important means of constraining ocean temperatures and ice volume at the poles (e.g., Shackleton and Kennett, 1975; Miller

The first exciting clues that Antarctica had not always been ice-covered were the leaf fossils of Glossopteris plants that Scott’s party brought back from the Beardmore Glacier region in 1912.
Thresholds for Cenozoic bipolar glaciation
It is found that Oi-1 is best explained by Antarctic glaciation alone, combined with deep-sea cooling of up to 4 °C and Antarctic ice that is less isotopically depleted than previously suggested, which implies that episodic northern-hemispheric ice sheets have been possible some 20 million years earlier than currently assumed and could explain some of the variability in Miocene sea-level records.
Megaspores of an early Miocene aquatic lycopod (Isoetales) from Antarctica
Abstract The paucity of late Paleogene and Neogene floras from Antarctica limits our ability to understand the interplay between Antarctic climate evolution and the impact that glaciation had on the
Microfossils Reveal the Workings of a Water Planet
863 Knowing past changes in surface ocean salinity would provide a powerful tracer of the hydrologic cycle, yielding climatic information such as the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere or


Magnetobiostratigraphic chronology of the Eocene—Oligocene transition in the CIROS-1 core, Victoria Land margin, Antarctica: Implications for Antarctic glacial history
In 1986, cores were obtained to a depth of 702 m (with 98% recovery) from the CIROS-1 drill hole beneath the Ross Sea on the Victoria Land margin. Glaciogene sediments identified near the base of the
Cenozoic evolution of Antarctic glaciation the Circum-Antarctic Ocean and their impact on global paleoceanography
Deep-sea drilling in the Antarctic region (Deep-Sea Drilling Project legs 28, 29, 35, and 36) has provided many new data about the development of circum-Antarctic circulation and the closely related
Miocene evolution of atmospheric carbon dioxide
Changes in pCO2 or ocean circulation are generally invoked to explain warm early Miocene climates and a rapid East Antarctic ice sheet (EAIS) expansion in the middle Miocene. This study reconstructs
Trends, Rhythms, and Aberrations in Global Climate 65 Ma to Present
This work focuses primarily on the periodic and anomalous components of variability over the early portion of this era, as constrained by the latest generation of deep-sea isotope records.
The Opening of the Tasmanian Gateway Drove Global Cenozoic Paleoclimatic and Paleoceanographic Changes: Results of Leg 189
The major ice sheets of the Cenozoic Era are unusual in geological history. Progressive cooling at high latitudes during the Cenozoic eventually formed major ice sheets, initially on Antarctica and
Glaciological modelling of the late Cenozoic East Antarctic ice sheet: Stability or dynamism?
On the basis of geological arguments, two widely different hypotheses have been proposed for the late-Tertiary glacial history of East Antarctica. Theseinvoke ice-sheet reconstructions ranging from
