Sea surface temperature calculation based on alkenones in sediments off northwest Africa, supplement to: Zhao, Meixun; Beveridge, N; Shackleton, Nicholas J; Sarnthein, Michael; Eglinton, Geoffrey (1995): Molecular stratigraphy, of cores off northwest Africa: Sea surface temperature history over the last 80 ka.

The molecular stratigraphy of Biogeochemical Oceanic Flux Study core 31K (19°N, 20°10'W) and Ocean Drilling Program Hole 658C (20°45'N, 18°35'W) has been studied for C37 alkenone abundances over the past 80 ka at high resolution (~circa 200-500 years). The derived Uk 37' sea surface temperature record for both cores shows a range of temperatures from about 18°C during the last glacial to 21.5°C during the early Holocene. Both records also reveal changes in sea surface...
