Sea surface reconstruction for sediments of the California continental margin, supplement to: Mangelsdorf, Kai; Günter, Ute; Rullkötter, Jürgen (2000): Climatic and oceanographic variations on the California continental margin during the last 160 kyr. Organic Geochemistry, 31(9), 829-846

Kai Mangelsdorf, Ute Günter & Jürgen Rullkötter
Organic matter in sediment samples from three ODP sites (Ocean Drilling Program Leg 167) that form a south-north transect was investigated to reconstruct the paleoclimatic and oceanographic conditions on the California continental margin during the last 160 kyr. Alkenone-derived paleosea surface temperatures (SST) are 3 to 6°C colder in glacial stages and reveal a clear relationship with global climate changes; the differences are greater in the north. Latitudinal SST comparison exhibits water mixing of the...
