New dating of sea-level records reveals rapid response between ice volume and polar temperature
Description: By comparing the ice-volume fluctuations with polar temperature reconstructions from the Greenland and Antarctica ice cores, scientists have found changes in temperature and ice volume/sea level are closely coupled with a response time lag of only a few centuries. This timing relationship was previously unknown, and it reveals a very fast response between global temperature and ice volume/sea level. [Source: University of Southampton]
