High resolution (200 yr sample spacing) records of sea surface temperature for the past 15,000 yr have been inferred from planktonic foraminiferal assemblages in a sediment core from the South China Sea. Although the assemblages imply a large glacial-to-interglacial temperature change, they give no indication of a cooling during Younger Dryas time. This suggests that the Younger Dryas increase in δ[18]O observed in cores from the equatorial Pacific is not due to a climatic cooling but rather to a change in the isotopic compositions of the oceans
