Inferring ocean circulation during the last glacial maximum and last deglaciation using data and models
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017-02-22)
Since the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, ~ 20,000 years ago) air temperatures warmed, sea level rose roughly 130 meters, and atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide increased. This thesis combines global models and ...
An inverse approach to understanding benthic oxygen isotope records from the last deglaciation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
Observations suggest that during the last deglaciation (roughly 20,000-10,000 years ago) the Earth warmed substantially, global sea level rose approximately 100 meters in response to melting ice sheets and glaciers, and ...
