Fig. 2 Here we compare Mg/Ca based intermediate water temperatures (IWT)(blue) and
O sw values derived from paired Mg/Ca -ʴ
O c measurements (green) with solar
TSI [Wm − 2 ] adapted from (Steinhilber et al. 2009 )(orange) and reconstructed winter
latitudinal temperature gradient (Dec
Feb) adapted from Fischer and Jungclaus ( 2011 )(red).
Bold lines refer to 60-year low-pass filters except for results based on OC437-7 24 GGC (0
BP) in panel b where bold lines show a 200-year low-pass filter. All graphs are plotted versus age.
In panel a the three yellow bars indicate the timing of the Maunder (1), Sp
rer (2) and Wolf (3)
solar minima (left to right) and in panel b the three yellow bars show the timing of the Maunder &
rer (1), Wolf solar minima (2) and the Dark Ages Cold Period (3) (left to right)
