Abstract:
We examine a single interglacial during the late Pliocene (KM5c, ca. 3.205 +/- 0.01 Ma) when atmospheric CO2 concentrations were higher than pre-industrial, but similar to today and to the lowest emission scenarios for this century. As orbital forcing and continental configurations were also similar to today, we are able to focus on equilibrium climate system response to modern and near-future CO2. We have synthesised largely published datasets, scrutinised their age models, and generated mean absolute SSTs and their anomaly relative to the pre-industrial. Here we present those values for both alkenone and foraminifera-Mg/Ca proxies.
