Reconstructing the upper water column thermal structure in the Atlantic Ocean

  author={Caroline Cl{\'e}roux and Peter B deMenocal and Jennifer Arbuszewski and Brad Linsley},
[1] The thermal structure of the upper ocean (0–1000m) is set by surface heat fluxes, shallow wind-driven circulation, and the deeper thermohaline circulation. Its long-term variability can be reconstructed using deep-dwelling planktonic foraminifera that record subsurface conditions. Here we used six species (Neogloboquadrina dutertrei,Globorotalia tumida, Globorotalia inflata, Globorotalia truncatulinoides, Globorotalia hirsuta, and Globorotalia crassaformis) from 66 core tops along a… CONTINUE READING
