Figure F31. Comparison of diatom abundance (smear slide visual index, ranging from 0 to 6) with alkenone-derived sea-surface temperature (SST) series and an "expected" temperature series based on deepwater oxygen isotopes in the eastern equatorial Pacific. The series labeled "1084DAI," "1084SST," and "849ox" are derived from the original data by methods including repositioning and smoothing (see "Early Matuyama Diatom Maximum: Search for Mechanisms" in "Lüderitz Site (Site 1084)"). The raw data for the three series are from Lange et al. (1999), Marlow et al. (2000), and Mix et al. (1995), respectively.
