25 Dansgaard-Oeschger Sudden Warming Events since the Eemian Interglacial

Plot of the 25 Dansgaard-Oeschger sudden warmings in the past 120,000 years.

Profiles of δ18O (reflecting temperature) from the GRIP, NorthGRIP, and DYE-3 ice cores for the past 123,000 years. The end of the Eemian interglacial ~120,000 years ago is covered by the NGRIP ice core only, while the late part of the Glacial is seen in all three Greenland records. The most prominent Dansgaard-Oeschger events during the Glacial are numbered. (Centre for Ice and Climate, 2013).
