Instabilities in the Labrador Sea water mass structure during the last climatic cycle
published at : The Climate System History and Dynamics Program - CSHD. Special issue
This study shows that multi-specific isotopic measurements in foraminifer assemblages from high sedimentation rate sites may provide indications on high frequency instabilities in the overlying water column. Unfortunately, it also shows that unequivocal interpretation of isotopic offsets between epipelagic, mesopelagic and benthic species are unlikely. Other proxies are needed to constrain temperature and salinity conditions at a given depth in order to transcribe isotopic offsets in the water column into precise thermohaline gradients
