Sea surface temperature reconstruction from biomarker in sediments off Portugal, supplement to: Rodrigues, Teresa; Grimalt, Joan O; Abrantes, Fatima F; Naughton, Filipa; Flores, José-Abel (2010): The last glacial-interglacial transition (LGIT) in the western mid-latitudes of the North Atlantic: Abrupt sea surface temperature change and sea level implications.

High resolution reconstructions of sea surface temperature (Uk'37-SST), coccolithophore associations and continental input (total organic carbon, higher plant n-alkanes, n-alkan-1-ols) in core D13882 from the shallow Tagus mud patch are compared to SST records from deep-sea core MD03-2699 and other western Iberian Margin cores. Results reveal millennial-scale climate variability over the last deglaciation, in particular during the LGIT. In the Iberian margin, Heinrich event 1 (H1) and the Younger Dryas (YD) represent two extreme episodes...
