Temperature record reconstructed from the cyclization and methylation index of branched tetraethers (MBT-CBT) displays that the onset of deglacial warming at ~20 kyr before present (BP) precedes the strengthening of summer monsoon at ~15 kyr BP, which is in agreement in timing with previous MBT-CBT temperature records from the southeastern CLP.
The exposed outer layers of the sections were removed during the course of sampling to ensure fresh samples for this study.
A total of 40 samples, 15 in the section CH02/02 and 25 in the section CH02/03 were collected. Constraints on the application of the MBT/CBT palaeothermometer at high latitude environments (Svalbard, Norway).
Sites LT (Lantian) and MS (Mangshan) have been studied for MBT-CBT temperature records by others and are mentioned in this paper. doi: 10.1016/20 Cross Ref Full Text Rueda, G., Rosell-Melé, A., Escala, M., Gyllencreutz, R., and Backman, J. Comparison of instrumental and GDGT-based estimates of sea surface and air temperatures from the Skagerrak.
In this study, we present GDGTs results for the past 70 kyr from the Yuanbao LPS, western CLP.
