Modeling oxygen isotopes in the Pliocene: Large-scale features over the land and ocean

Article English OPEN
Tindall, JC; Haywood, AM;
  • Publisher: American Geophysical Union (AGU)

The first isotope-enabled general circulation model (GCM) simulations of the Pliocene are used to discuss the interpretation of δ18O measurements for a warm climate. The model suggests that spatial patterns of Pliocene ocean surface δ18O ( inline image) were similar to ... View more
