Calculated surface water paleotemperatures for the lower Pliocene at DSDP Site 18-173 from the California continental slope (Table I), supplement to: Kammer, Thomas W (1979): Paleosalinity, paleotemperature, and isotopic fractionation records of Neogene foraminifera from DSDP site 173 and the Centerville Beach Section, California.

Thomas W Kammer
The oxygen isotope record of the planktonic foraminifera Globigerina bulloides and Neogloboquadrina pachyderma from Pliocene and early Pleistocene sediments at both DSDP site 173 and the Centerville Beach section in California suggests a large influx of isotopically light water in this area during late Pliocene and early Pleistocene time. Salinity may have been reduced by as much as 2 to 4 ‰. Surface sea water paleotemperatures for the lower Pliocene range from 9.5°C to 15.5°C....
