Early Cenozoic Glaciation, Antarctic Weathering, and seawater 87Sr/86Sr: is there a Link?

Zachos, James; Opdyke, Bradley; Quinn, Terrence; Jones, Cynthia; Halliday, Alexander

Description

Stable and radiogenic isotopic and sedimentological data from sub-Antarctic deep sea sediment cores reveal a temporal link between changes in seawater 87Sr/86Sr ratios and major episodes of late Eocene-early Oligocene climate change. The 87Sr/86Sr records show two major inflections, one at 38-39 Ma near the middle/late Eocene boundary, followed by another at 33.4 Ma. Similarly, the oxygen isotope, ice-rafted debris, and clay assemblage records indicate two important climatic events: the...[Show more]
