The MWP in the Warm Pool

You may recall Hansen’s strange splice of modern instrumental records with a Mg/Ca SST proxy ending in 4320 BP based on a partially dissolved core.’ A couple of months ago, I mentioned a new paper by Newton et al (including L Stott) with a high Warm Pool MWP and briefly discussed Netwon’s presentation at AGU […]

The Hansen Splice

Mg/Ca proxies measure the temperature of calcification of G. ruber, which is not necessarily the same as surface temperature. Dahl et al state G. ruber is present year–round at Site 723B, but experiences blooms during both monsoon seasons and calcifies above 80 m water depth (14–16)…. In accordance with the seasonality of G. ruber in […]
