New Paper Update: Bermuda Interglacial Climate

Our collaborator Ian Winkelstern just published a paper on our work reconstructing Bermudan Climate.

We found that, in Bermuda, interglacial climate during MIS 5e was slightly cooler than modern. This is in line with CLIMAP reconstructions of the North Atlantic region. At a second MIS 5e outcrop a few km away from the first, we also found evidence for meltwater (10C cooler temps, 2 permil lower d18Owater), which was very surprising, given the mid-ocean location of Bermuda. Based on the age, we attribute this meltwater to melting Greenland.

Surprising and exciting results!!
