Correlations between climate records from North Atlantic sediments and Greenland ice
G. Bond, W. Broecker, +4 authors G. Bonani
Environmental Science
Nature

9 September 1993
OXYGEN isotope measurements in Greenland ice demonstrate that a series of rapid warm-cold oscillations—called Dansgaard–Oeschger events—punctuated the last glaciation1. Here we present records of sea… Expand

Evidence for massive discharges of icebergs into the North Atlantic ocean during the last glacial period
G. Bond, H. Heinrich, +11 authors Susan Ivy
Geology
Nature

19 November 1992
SEDIMENTS in the North Atlantic ocean contain a series of layers that are rich in ice-rafted debris and unusually poor in foraminifera1. Here we present evidence that the most recent six of these… Expand

Redfield ratio based on chemical data from isopycnal surfaces
Taro Takahashi, W. Broecker, S. Langer
Geology
20 July 1985
The composition of the organic matter oxidized within the thermocline of the Atlantic and Indian oceans has been estimated from the chemical data along the σθ 27.0 and 27.2 horizons. These estimates… Expand

Gas exchange rates between air and sea
W. Broecker, T. Peng
Geology
1 February 1974
Gas exchange rate studies carried out in the laboratory suggest that the stagnant film model is adequate to relate the transfer coefficients of most gases between the atmosphere and sea to an… Expand

Interhemispheric Atlantic seesaw response during the last deglaciation
S. Barker, P. Diz, +4 authors W. Broecker
Geology, Medicine
Nature

26 February 2009
TLDR
New records from the South Atlantic are presented that show rapid changes during the last deglaciation that were instantaneous (within dating uncertainty) and of opposite sign to those observed in the North Atlantic.Expand

The Peru Upwelling and the Ventilation of the South Pacific Thermocline
J. Toggweiler, K. Dixon, W. Broecker
Geology
15 November 1991
A reconstruction of the prebomb A 14C distribution in the tropical Pacific using data from old coral heads shows that surface waters with the lowest A14C content are found distinctly south of the… Expand

PALEOCEAN CIRCULATION DURING THE LAST DEGLACIATION : A BIPOLAR SEESAW ?
W. Broecker
Geology
1 April 1998
Hughen et al. [1998] have documented that during the first 200 years of Younger Dryas time the 14C content of atmospheric CO2 increased by ∼50‰ and that during the remainder of this… Expand

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

Does the ocean–atmosphere system have more than one stable mode of operation?
W. Broecker, D. Peteet, D. Rind
Environmental Science
Nature

2 May 1985
The climate record obtained from two long Greenland ice cores reveals several brief climate oscillations during glacial time. The most recent of these oscillations, also found in continental pollen… Expand

Massive iceberg discharges as triggers for global climate change
W. Broecker
Environmental Science
Nature

1 December 1994
Observations of large and abrupt climate changes recorded in Greenland ice cores have spurred a search for clues to their cause. This search has revealed that at six times during the last glaciation,… Expand
