Onset of North Atlantic deep water production coincident with inception of the Cenozoic global cooling trend

Abstract:

Here we show that the onset of deep water overflow from the Norwegian-Greenland Sea into the North Atlantic, interpreted to represent the onset of a modern-style North Atlantic Deep Water mass, commenced close to the early to middle Eocene boundary. This finding is based on the identification of a large, elongate contourite sediment drift, the "Judd Falls Drift," in the Faeroe-Shetland Basin, through detailed mapping of high-resolution two-dimensional and three-dimensional seismic data.
