Multidecadal variations in the early Holocene outflow of Red Sea Water into the Arabian Sea

Article English OPEN
Jung, S.J.A.; Ganssen, G.M.; Davies, G.R.;

We present Holocene stable oxygen isotope data from the deep Arabian Sea off Somalia at a decadal time resolution as a proxy for the history of intermediate/upper deep water. These data show an overall δ18O reduction by 0.5‰ between 10 and ~6.5 kyr B.P. superimposed upo... View more
