Abrupt deep-sea warming, palaeoceanographic changes and benthic extinctions at the end of the Palaeocene
J. Kennett, L. Stott
Geology
Nature

1 September 1991
A remarkable oxygen and carbon isotope excursion occurred in Antarctic waters near the end of the Palaeocene (~57.33 Myr ago), indicating rapid global warming and oceanographic changes that caused… Expand

Paleotemperature History of the Cenozoic and the Initiation of Antarctic Glaciation: Oxygen and Carbon Isotope Analyses in DSDP Sites 277, 279 and 281
N. Shackleton, J. Kennett
Geology
1975
An oxygen and carbon isotopic history based on analyses of benthonic and planktonic foraminifera in three overlapping subantarctic sections is presented for the last 55 m.y. with a sampling interval… Expand

The middle Miocene climatic transition: East Antarctic ice sheet development, deep ocean circulation and global carbon cycling
B. Flower, J. Kennett
Geology
1 April 1994
Abstract The middle Miocene represents a major change in state in Cenozoic climatic evolution, following the climax of Neogene warmth in the late early Miocene at ∼16 Ma. The early stage of this… Expand

Cenozoic evolution of Antarctic glaciation the Circum-Antarctic Ocean and their impact on global paleoceanography
J. Kennett
Geology
20 September 1977
Deep-sea drilling in the Antarctic region (Deep-Sea Drilling Project legs 28, 29, 35, and 36) has provided many new data about the development of circum-Antarctic circulation and the closely related… Expand

Middle Miocene Southern Ocean Cooling and Antarctic Cryosphere Expansion
A. Shevenell, J. Kennett, D. Lea
Geology, Medicine
Science

17 September 2004
TLDR
Comparing SSTs and global carbon cycling proxies challenges the notion that episodic pCO2 drawdown drove this major Cenozoic climate transition, and suggests instead that orbitally paced ocean circulation changes altered meridional heat/vapor transport, triggering ice growth and global cooling.

Routing of meltwater from the Laurentide Ice Sheet during the Younger Dryas cold episode
W. Broecker, J. Kennett, +4 authors W. Wolfli
Geology
Nature

1 December 1989
ROOTH1 proposed that the Younger Dryas cold episode, which chilled the North Atlantic region from 11,000 to 10,000 yr BP, was initiated by a diversion of meltwater from the Mississippi drainage to… Expand

Neogene planktonic foraminifera: A phylogenetic atlas

Evidence for an extraterrestrial impact 12,900 years ago that contributed to the megafaunal extinctions and the Younger Dryas cooling
R. Firestone, A. West, +23 authors W. Wolbach
Geology, Medicine
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
9 October 2007
TLDR
It is proposed that one or more large, low-density ET objects exploded over northern North America, partially destabilizing the Laurentide Ice Sheet and triggering YD cooling, which contributed to end-Pleistocene megafaunal extinctions and adaptive shifts among PaleoAmericans in North America.Expand

Brief interstadial events in the Santa Barbara basin, NE Pacific, during the past 60 kyr
R. Behl, J. Kennett
Geology
Nature

18 January 1996
THE instability of the Northern Hemisphere glacial climate over the past 100 kyr has been revealed by at least 20 brief warm (interstadial) episodes, called Dansgaard–Oeschger events, recorded in… Expand

Middle Miocene ocean-climate transition: High resolution oxygen and carbon isotopic records from Dee
B. Flower, J. Kennett
Geology
1 December 1993
High-resolution stable isotopic records are presented for the epi-benthic foraminifer Cibicidoides, the inferred shallow-dwelling planktonic Globigerinoides quadrilobatus, and the inferred… Expand
