Astronomical forcing of mediterranean climate during the last 5.3 million years

By L.J. Lourens


The prime target of this investigation was to\ud provide a better understanding of the processes\ud underlying the onset of major south- and\ud northern hemisphere glaciations around 2.8 Ma\ud BP. Two issues had to be considered before we\ud started our investigation. Firstly, are there\ud sufficiently long and uninterrupted (marine)\ud sequences available and, secondly, what\ud climatic proxies are suitable for paleoclimatic\ud reconstructions
