Here we establish a spatio-temporal evolution of the sea-surface temperature anomalies in the North Atlantic over Dansgaard Oeschger (DO) events 5-8 (30-40ka) using the proxy surrogate reconstruction method. We combine fully coupled, general circulation model simulations with planktic foraminifera based sea-surface temperature reconstructions to obtain a broader spatial picture of the ocean state during DO-events 5-8. Here, the model simulations consists of 10 simulations with HadCM3, 8 runs without freshwater forcing and 2 runs with freshwater forcing. These simulations were run by Paul J. Valdes, Joy S. Singarayer and William H.G. Roberts. A description of the simulations can be found in Singarayer and Valdes (2010). All model simulations were run using the University of Bristol's ACRC facilities, ( This is the first time the proxy surrogate reconstruction method has been applied to oceanic variability during MIS3. The sea-surface temperature reconstructions should be used with care.
