Quaternary Science Reviews
1. Modest global-scale cooling despite extensive early Pleistocene ice sheets
Jeremy D. Shakun
Models disagree on how much LGM cooling due to ice sheets versus greenhouse gases.
Marine Isotope Stages 98 and 100 had extensive ice sheets but relatively high CO2.
Modest cooling during these glacials suggests secondary role for ice sheets.

2. Sea-surface temperatures for the last 7200 years from the eastern Sunda Shelf, South China Sea: Climatic inferences from planktonic foraminiferal Mg/Ca ratios
Anna Lee Woodson, Eduardo Leorri , Stephen J. Culver, David J. Mallinson, Peter R. Parham, Robert C. Thunell, V.R. Vijayand, Scott Curtis
Foraminiferal Mg/Ca data indicate SST on the Sunda Shelf for the past 7200 years.
A 1000-year cool interval was identified, centered on 5000 cal years.
The last ca. 1000 years were the warmest interval with SST averaging 28.5 ± 0.5 °C.
Shallow shelf environments can produce high resolution paleoclimatic reconstructions.
