Unlocking the ice house: Oligocene-Miocene oxygen isotopes, eustasy and margin erosion / Kenneth G. Miller, James D. Wright, Richard G. Fairbanks.

Title: Unlocking the ice house: Oligocene-Miocene oxygen isotopes, eustasy and margin erosion / Kenneth G. Miller, James D. Wright, Richard G. Fairbanks.
Author(s): Miller, Kenneth G.

Fairbanks, Richard G.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1991.), Vol. 96(B4) (1991)
Abstract: δ¹⁸O records and glaciomarine sediments indicate intermittant presence of large continental ice sheets on Antarctica since Early Oligocene (35 Ma). Growth and decay during Oligocene to modern "ice house world" caused glacioeustatic sea-level changes. Early Eocene was ice-free "greenhouse world" but it is not clear if ice sheets existed during Late Eocene "doubt house world". Best indicator of ice growth is coeval increase in global benthic and western equatorial planktonic δ¹⁸O records, but difficulties due to lack of adequate data and problems in stratigraphic correlations still exist. Some new and improved correlations are presented.
