Abdul et al. (2016) presented a detailed record of sea level at Barbados (13.9 - 9 kyr B.P.) tightly constraining the timing and amplitude during the Younger Dryas and Meltwater Pulse 1B (MWP-1B) based on U-Th dated reef crest coral species Acropora palmata. The Younger Dryas slow-stand and the large (14 meter) rapid sea-level jump are not resolved in the Tahiti record. Tahiti sea-level estimates are remarkably close to the Barbados sea level curve between 13.9 and 11.6 kyr but fall below the Ba...

Oxygen isotope measurements (δ18Ow) were made on seawater samples collected monthly between May 1996 and February 1997 and between December 2005 and May 2006 at various water depths at the Cariaco Basin ocean time series station (10°30N, 64°40W). The δ18Ow values are compared with concurrent salinity measurements to assess the δ18Ow:salinity relationship in this tropical region and to determine if significant seasonal variability exists in the relationship. The δ18Ow values range from 0.88 to 1....

Abstract While ocean circulation is driven by the formation of deep water in the North Atlantic and the Circum-Antarctic, the role of southern-sourced deep water formation in climate change is poorly understood. Here we address the balance of northern- and southern-sourced waters in the South Atlantic through the last glacial period using neodymium isotope ratios of authigenic ferromanganese oxides in thirteen deep sea cores from throughout the South Atlantic. The data indicate that northern-sou...

The timing and course of the last deglaciation (19,000–6,000 years BP) are essential components for understanding the dynamics of large ice sheets (Lindstrom and MacAyeal, 1993) and their effects on Earth’s isostasy (Nakada and Lambeck, 1989; Lambeck, 1993; Peltier, 1994), as well as the complex relationship between freshwater fluxes to the ocean, thermohaline circulation, and, hence, global climate during the Late Pleistocene and the Holocene. Moreover, the last deglaciation is generally seen a...

Abstract The radiocarbon reservoir age of high latitude North Atlantic Ocean surface water is essential for linking the continental and marine climate records, and is expected to vary according to changes in North Atlantic deep water (NADW) production. Measurements from this region also provide important input and/or tests of oceanic radiocarbon using 3-D global ocean circulation models. Here, we present a surface water radiocarbon reservoir age record of the high latitude western North Atlantic...
