Figure 2.24: Records of climate variability during the Holocene and the last climatic transition, including the 8.2 ky BP event (adapted from Johnsen et al., 1992; Hughen et al., 1996; Thompson et al., 1998; von Grafenstein et al., 1999; Jouzel et al., 2001). The shaded areas show the 8.2 ky BP event, the Younger Dryas event and the Antarctic Cold Reversal. The grey scale used in the Tropical North Atlantic record is a measure of sea surface temperature, deduced from the colour of plankton rich layers within an ocean sediment core.
