Abstract

Prior to oxygen-isotope termination IA (16,000-13,000 yr B.P.), an isolated watermass, with lower oxygen content and temperature warmer than today existed below a low salinity ice-covered surface layer in the Norwegian Sea. Close to termination IA, well-oxygenated deep water, probably with positive temperatures, was introduced. The present situation with strong influx of warm Atlantic surface-water and deep-water formation by surface cooling, was established at termination IB.
