Abstract

Reanalysis and additional dating of the Devils Hole δ[18]O paleotemperature record confirm that the last interglaciation in the Great Basin (the continental analog of marine isotopic substage 5e) lasted 22,000 yr, consistent with the Vostok paleotemperature record which suggests a duration of 19,000 yr for this event in Antarctica. Thus, the widely held view that interglaciations were of 11,000- to 13,000-yr duration and constituted only about 10% of mid-to-late Pleistocene climatic cycles needs reexamination
