Martínez-Botí, M. A.; Marino, G.; Foster, G. L.; Ziveri, P.; Henehan, M. J.; Rae, J. W. B.; Mortyn, P. G.; Vance, D.


Atmospheric CO2 fluctuations over glacial-interglacial cycles remain a major challenge to our understanding of the carbon cycle and the climate system. Leading hypotheses put forward to explain glacial-interglacial atmospheric CO2 variations invoke changes in deep-ocean carbon storage, probably modulated by processes in the Southern Ocean, where much of the deep ocean is ventilated. A central aspect of such models is that, during deglaciations, an isolated glacial deep-ocean carbon reservoir is...[Show more]
