Temperature reconstruction for the Mid-Pleistocene Transition based on deep-dwelling foraminifera of IODP Site339-U1385, supplement to: Bahr, André; Kaboth, Stefanie; Hodell, David A; Zeeden, Christian; Fiebig, Jens; Friedrich, Oliver (2018): Oceanic heat pulses fueling moisture transport towards continental Europe across the mid-Pleistocene transition. Quaternary Science Reviews, 179, 48-58


The mid-Pleistocene Transition (MPT; approx. 1.2-0.7 Ma), is characterized by growing Northern Hemisphere ice sheets and the shift from a 41 kyr to a 100 kyr glacial-interglacial cyclicity. Concomitant to the growth of large ice sheets, atmospheric and oceanic circulation pattern have changed. One key feature of the North Atlantic is the wind-driven Subtropical Gyre, a major provider of heat and moisture for continental Europe. Here, we investigate changes in the strength and spatial configuration of the Subtropical Gyre during the MPT and its impact on the continental moisture balance.
