South Tasman Sea alkenone palaeothermometry over the last four glacial/interglacial cycles

Pelejero, Carles; Calvo, Eva; Barrows, Timothy; Logan, Graham A; De Deckker, Patrick

Description

Alkenone palaeothermometry has demonstrated a wide spatial and temporal applicability for the reconstruction of sea-surface temperatures (SST). Some oceanic realms, however, remain poorly studied. We document U37K' index data for two sediment cores retrieved from the South Tasman Sea, one west of New Zealand (SO136-GC3) and the other southeast of Tasmania (FR1/94-GC3), extending back 280 kyr BP for the former and 460 kyr BP for the latter. High climatic sensitivity on orbital time scales is...[Show more]
