Abstract

Six high-resolution records correlated with marine isotope stage 5 suggest that substage 5c was essentially interglacial, and was terminated by a catastrophic cooling. Over sixty Th dates indicate that the sea level in substage 5c rose to at least-2m. Amino-acid ratios, archaeology, pollen and lithostratigraphy suggest that the sea later jumped to about +16m. The combination of the cooling and the large jump points to an East Antarctic ice surge, at 95 kyr BP.
