Figure F4. A. Benthic δ18O record of Tiedemann et al. (1994) from ODP Site 659 in the eastern equatorial Atlantic; a proxy for paleoclimate and sea level fluctuations for the past 5 m.y. Pliocene and Pleistocene climate transitions are highlighted by shading. B. New high-resolution benthic δ18O record from ODP Site 983 (solid line) plotted vs. the benthic δ18O record from Site 659 (dashed line) for comparison across the mid-Pleistocene (0.7–1.2 Ma). Interglacial stages are labeled (from Kleiven et al., 2003). C. wuellerstorfi = Cibicidoides wuellerstorfi.
