Stable isotope record of Cibicidoides spp. from Late Miocene sediments of the Southern Ocean, supplement to: Wright, James D; Miller, Kenneth G; Fairbanks, Richard G (1991): Evolution of modern deepwater circulation: evidence from the Late Miocene southern ocean. Paleoceanography, 6(2), 275-290

James D Wright, Kenneth G Miller & Richard G Fairbanks
Deepwater circulation plays an important role in climate modulation through its redistribution of heat and salt and its control of atmospheric CO2. Oppo and Fairbanks (1987, doi:10.1016/0012-821X(87)90183-X) showed that the Southern Ocean is an excellent monitor of deepwater circulation changes for two reasons: (1) the Southern Ocean is a mixing reservoir for incoming North Atlantic Deep Water and recirculated water from the Pacific and Indian oceans; and (2) the nutrient/delta13C tracers of deepwater are not...
