Traditional reconstructions of sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) produced by the Pliocene Research Interpretations and Synoptic Mapping (PRISM) Group indicate that mid-Pliocene surface ocean temperatures were unchanged or slightly cooler than modern at the tropics and low latitudes and significantly warmer at higher latitudes, particularly in the North Atlantic. This change in the latitudinal pattern of SSTs has been attributed to enhanced meridional ocean heat transport generated by more… CONTINUE READING
