Mg/Ca and stable isotope record of benthic foraminifera of the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, supplement to: Tripati, Aradhna K; Elderfield, Henry (2005): Deep-sea temperature and circulation changes at the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum. Science, 308(5730), 1894-1898

Aradhna K Tripati & Henry Elderfield
A rapid increase in greenhouse gas levels is thought to have fueled global warming at the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM). Foraminiferal magnesium/calcium ratios indicate that bottom waters warmed by 4° to 5°C, similar to tropical and subtropical surface ocean waters, implying no amplification of warming in high-latitude regions of deep-water formation under ice-free conditions. Intermediate waters warmed before the carbon isotope excursion, in association with downwelling in the North Pacific and reduced Southern Ocean convection,...
