Hydrological and associated biogeochemical consequences of rapid global warming during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum

Abstract:

The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) hyperthermal, ~56 million years ago (Ma), is the most dramatic example of abrupt Cenozoic global warming. Characterised by surface temperature increases of between 5 – 9 °C and a rapid onset of less than 20 kyr, the PETM has been widely studied as a natural analogue for future anthropogenic-induced warming. The PETM provides a case study of the impacts of global warming on the Earth system, including both hydrological and associated biogeochemical f...
