Changes in sea surface hydrology of the Gulf Stream over the last 2000 years

Alkenone analyses were performed along the core MD99-2203 (34°58 38N, 75°12 06 W, 620 meters depth), to determine changes in sea surface temperatures off Cape Hatteras on the Gulf Stream path. This time series covers the last 2000 years and complement the Mg/Ca ratios measured in the planktonic foraminifera G. ruber white.
