Figure F6. Three-point moving averages of total organic carbon (TOC), calcium carbonate (CaCO3), relative (rel.) XRD intensities for dolomite, and alkenone-based sea-surface temperatures (SST). Global benthic isotope stack from Lisiecki and Raymo (2005). Marine isotope stage (MIS) and substage numbering from Bassinot et al. (1994). T = Termination. Orange rhombs indicate occurrence of Heinrich-like events (HE) at Site U1308 (from Hodell et al., 2008). Modern SST (from Locarnini et al., 2006) and estimated SSTs for MIS 2 and 6 are indicated. Figure from Stein et al. (2009).
