Ice CORe DAting tools revisited to infer the dynamic of glacial – interglacial transitions over the last 1.5 million years

Project description

Shedding light on glacial-interglacial transitions

The largest climate changes during the Quaternary Period are glacial. It is during this period that the rhythm of terminations changed to a 100 ka glacial–interglacial periodicity between 1250 and 700 ka. The cause of such a transition is still debated. The EU-funded interdisciplinary ICORDA project will investigate the mechanisms of terminations by deciphering influences such as insolation forcing, ice sheet size and atmospheric greenhouse gases concentration, through the European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica Dome C covering 800 ka and an ice core covering the last 1500 ka. The project will further examine how ice core chronology is built.
