Paleoceanographic evidence commonly indicates that Last Glacial Maximum surface temperatures in the Japan Sea were comparable to modern conditions, in striking difference to colder neighboring regions. Here, based on a core from the central Japan Sea, our results show similar UK′37- and TEXL86-derived temperatures between 24.7-16.3 ka BP, followed by an abrupt divergence at ~16.3 ka BP and a weakening of divergence after ~ 8.7 ka BP. We attribute this process to a highly stratified...
