Stable carbon and oxygen isotope ratios of foraminifera from Holocene sediments of the North Atlantic, supplement to: Millo, Christian; Sarnthein, Michael; Voelker, Antje H L; Erlenkeuser, Helmut (2006): Variability of the Denmark Strait Overflow during the Last Glacial Maximum. Boreas, 35(1), 50-60

The Denmark Strait Overflow (DSO) today compensates for the northward flowing Norwegian and Irminger branches of the North Atlantic Current that drive the Nordic heat pump. During the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), ice sheets constricted the Denmark Strait aperture in addition to ice eustatic/isostatic effects which reduced its depth (today ~630 m) by ~130 m. These factors, combined with a reduced north-south density gradient of the water-masses, are expected to have restricted or even reversed...
