Late Holocene intermediate water variability in the northeastern Atlantic as recorded by deep-sea corals

Abstract:

The Nd isotopic composition of the aragonite skeleton of fossil deep-sea corals (Lophelia pertusa, Madrepora oculata and Desmophyllum dianthus) located in the northeastern Atlantic at water depths between 635 and 1300. m was investigated to reconstruct changes in the Atlantic mid-depth gyre circulation during the past millennium. The coral εNd values varied systematically from - 11.8 to - 14.4 during the past 1500. years, reflecting variations in seawater εNd and thus water mass provenance. L...
