Abstract

Termination II (glacial to interglacial transition from oxygen isotope stage 6 to stage 5) is considered to be one of the most rapid and abrupt climatic changes during the late Quaternary. Our high resolution geochemical and nannofloral study of the interval from 140 to 100 ka in the northeast Atlantic core T90-9P (45°17.5'N, 25°41.3'W) shows that Termination II (135-125 ka) occurred in two steps of drastic changes, interrupted by a short period of stability, and followed by at least 25 ka of relatively stable, interglacial conditions, traditionally referred to as the Eemian age (substage 5.5).
