Early Jurassic North Atlantic sea-surface temperatures from TEX86 palaeothermometry

Abstract:

Early Jurassic marine palaeotemperatures have been typically quantified by oxygen-isotope palaeothermometry of benthic and nektonic carbonate and phosphatic macrofossils. However, records of Early Jurassic sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) that can be directly compared with General Circulation Model (GCM) simulations of past climates are currently unavailable. The TEX86 SST proxy is based upon the relative abundance of glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (GDGTs) preserved in organic-carbon-be...
