Antarctic temperature and global sea level closely coupled over the past five glacial cycles

Rohling, Eelco J.; Grant, K; Bolshaw, M; Roberts, Andrew; Siddall, M; Hemleben, Ch; Kucera, M

Description

Ice cores from Antarctica record temperature and atmospheric carbon dioxide variations over the past six glacial cycles1,2. Yet concomitant records of sea-level fluctuations - needed to reveal rates and magnitudes of ice-volume change that provide context to projections for the future3-9 - remain elusive. Reconstructions indicate fast rates of sea-level rise up to 5 cm yr-1 during glacial terminations10, and 1-2 cm yr-1 during interglacials11,12 and within the past glacial cycle13. However,...[Show more]
