The transition from the late Oligocene warm period into the early Miocene was marked by a series of rapid and brief episodes of cryospheric expansion and global cooling. We analyzed benthic foraminifers from nannofossil oozes recovered at Ocean Drilling Program Site 1218 to construct a stable isotope stratigraphy for the deep Pacific.
