Alexandra Auderset (Max Planck Institute). Gulf Stream intensification after the early Pliocene shoaling of the Central American Seaway The shoaling of the Central American Seaway (CAS) around 4.6 Ma (million years ago) is thought to have enhanced the Gulf Stream, strengthening the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation and potentially influencing the evolution of Pliocene climate. Paleoclimate records indicate a buildup of heat and salinity in the Caribbean and changes in the formation of North Atlantic Deep Water (NADW) associated with a major... View Article
