Alkenones and reconstructed sea surface temperature from sediment core 96-619 (Table 1), supplement to: Jasper, John P; Gagosian, Robert B (1989): Alkenone molecular stratigraphy in an oceanic environment affected by glacial freshwater events. Paleoceanography, 4(6), 603-614

The sedimentary record of a ratio (UK37) of long chain (C37) unsaturated alkenones is a useful indicator of glacial-interglacial climatic change in the Late Quaternary northern Gulf of Mexico where a planktonic foraminiferal delta18O-CaCO3 record is complicated by meltwater and/or fluvial events (Williams and Kohl, 1986, doi:10.2973/dsdp.proc.96.137.1986). Application of a laboratory temperature calibration of the UK37 ratio (Prahl and Wakeham, 1987, doi:10.1038/330367a0) to a Pigmy Basin hydraulic piston core record (Deep Sea Drilling Project core...
