North Atlantic Sediments....yet more

Here is yet another article demonstrating global warming and cooling going on long before man's usage of coal and oil.

Science 17 February 1995:Vol. 267. no. 5200, pp. 1005 - 1010DOI: 10.1126/science.267.5200.1005

Iceberg Discharges into the North Atlantic on Millennial Time Scales During the Last Glaciation Gerard C. Bond 1 and Rusty Lotti 1
1 Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, Palisades, NY 10964, USA.
High-resolution studies of North Atlantic deep sea cores demonstrate that prominent increases in iceberg calving recurred at intervals of 2000 to 3000 years, much more frequently than the 7000-to 10,000-year pacing of massive ice discharges associated with Heinrich events. The calving cycles correlate with warm-cold oscillations, called Dansgaard-Oeschger events, in Greenland ice cores. Each cycle records synchronous discharges of ice from different sources, and the cycles are decoupled from sea-surface temperatures. These findings point to a mechanism operating within the atmosphere that caused rapid oscillations in air temperatures above Greenland and in calving from more than one ice sheet.
