172 Scientific Prospectus

Percent-carbonate data for two Leg 172 sites (Core KNR31-GPC-5 for the Bermuda Rise and Core KNR31-GPC-9 for the Bahama Outer Ridge), plotted on the age model (solid line) of Fig. 5. The millennial-scale stadial/interstadial carbonate variability is thought to correlate with similar oscillations in ice core records of climate, and has been linked to variable production of NADW (Keigwin and Jones, 1994).
