Super ENSO and Global Climate Oscillations at Millennial Time Scales
L. Stott, C. Poulsen, S. Lund, R. Thunell
Environmental Science, MedicineScience
12 July 2002
The late Pleistocene history of seawater temperature and salinity variability in the western tropical Pacific warm pool is reconstructed from oxygen isotope (δ18O) and magnesium/calcium composition… Expand

Magnitude and timing of temperature change in the Indo-Pacific warm pool during deglaciation
K. Visser, R. Thunell, L. Stott
Geology, Environmental ScienceNature
1 December 2002
TLDR
Observations suggest that the tropical Pacific region plays an important role in driving glacial—interglacial cycles, possibly through a system similar to how El Niño/Southern Oscillation regulates the poleward flux of heat and water vapour. Expand

Decline of surface temperature and salinity in the western tropical Pacific Ocean in the Holocene epoch
L. Stott, K. Cannariato, R. Thunell, G. Haug, A. Koutavas, S. Lund
Environmental Science, MedicineNature
2 September 2004
TLDR
The data imply either that the Pacific basin as a whole has become progressively less salty or that the present salinity gradient along the Equator has developed relatively recently. Expand

The nitrogen isotope biogeochemistry of sinking particles from the margin of the Eastern North Pacific
M. Altabet, C. Pilskaln, +4 authors R. François
Geology
1 April 1999
The nitrogen isotopic composition of time-series sediment trap samples, dissolved NO~ , and surficial sediments was determined in three regions along the margin of the eastern North Pacific: Monterey… Expand

An 8-century tropical Atlantic SST record from the Cariaco Basin: Baseline variability, twentieth-century warming, and Atlantic hurricane frequency
D. Black, M. A. Abahazi, R. Thunell, A. Kaplan, E. Tappa, L. Peterson
Geology
1 December 2007
[1] We present the first direct comparison and calibration of a downcore foraminiferal Mg/Ca record to historical instrumental sea surface temperature (SST). Mg/Ca measured on the planktic… Expand

Chemoautotrophy in the redox transition zone of the Cariaco Basin: A significant midwater source of organic carbon production
G. Taylor, M. Iabichella, +4 authors R. Varela
Geology
2001
During the CARIACO time series program, microbial standing stocks, bacterial production, and acetate turnover were consistently elevated in the redox transition zone (RTZ) of the Cariaco Basin, the… Expand

Seasonal and annual variability in particle fluxes in the Gulf of California: A response to climate forcing
R. Thunell
Environmental Science
1 December 1998
Abstract A six-year time series of sediment trap samples is used to document seasonal and interannual changes in particle fluxes in Guaymas Basin, Gulf of California. Sedimentation in this region of… Expand

Increased northeast Pacific climatic variability during the warm middle Holocene
J. Friddell, R. Thunell, T. Guilderson, M. Kashgarian
Geology
1 June 2003
[1] We use a pair of decadally resolved planktonic foraminiferal δ18O records from Santa Barbara Basin (SBB) to show that the warmest interval of the current interglacial, the middle Holocene, was… Expand

Distribution of recent planktonic foraminifera in surface sediments of the Mediterranean Sea
R. Thunell
Geology
1 June 1978
The Mediterranean Sea is a partillay isolated ocean where excess evaporation over precipitation results in large east to west gradients in temperature and salinity. Recent planktonic foraminiferal… Expand
