Summary
Abstract: The conversion of surface water to deep water in the North Atlantic results in
the release of heat from the ocean to the atmosphere, which may have amplified
millennial-scale climate variability during glacial times and could even have
contributed to the past 11,700 years of relatively mild climate (known as the
Holocene epoch). Here we investigate changes in the carbon-isotope composition
of benthic foraminifera throughout the Holocene and find that deep-water
production varied on a centennial-millennial timescale. These variations may
be linked to surface and atmospheric events that hint at a contribution to
climate change over this period.
