Atlantic meridional overturning circulation during interglacials (AMOCINT)

Tildelt: kr 7,0 mill.

AMOCINT aims to decipher for the North Atlantic the spatial and temporal structure of the interglacial peaks and demises and their timing with forcing variations. It will provide multiproxy data sets to successfully correlate land and ocean climate recor ds and forcings, focussing in particular on two prominent interglacials: MIS 5e (the last interglacial) and MIS 11 (which was the last time the Earths orbital parameters were similar to those prevailing today). Lags and leads of the different forcings mec hanisms and the respective thresholds will be quantified with a century scale resolution for the glacial inception following MIS 5e and MIS 11. Through these studies the groundwork will be laid to justify coring the complete suite of interglacials over th e past 1 million years through IODP.
