Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 8 millennial variability stratigraphically identical to MIS 3

Abstract : The Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 3 stratigraphy is highly robust and was reproduced during another period: MIS 8.6 global ice volume was similar during MIS 8.6 to MIS 3 (60 to 90 m sea level equivalent), but the Milankovitch insolation forcing was different, implying that Earth's predisposition to millennial internal variability is controlled by the configuration of the major ice sheets. The involvement of additional factors cannot be ruled out but by identifying several such periods using new deep ice cores from Dome Concordia and Dome Fuji (Antarctica) as well as the marine record we may isolate the factors predisposing Earth to these highly significant modes of climate variability.
