Sultry last interglacial gets sudden chill

Abstract

An Eemian cold event observed in both high-resolution marine and terrestrial climate records offers an opportunity to study a climate event during an interglacial on a human timescale, thus providing an analog for future climate change. This event, however, would not have been discovered had it not been for the “Eemian controversy” stirred by the Greenland ice core records.
