The Holocene is the current geological epoch. It began approximately 11,650 cal years before present, after the last glacial period, which concluded with the Holocene glacial retreat. The Holocene and the preceding Pleistocene together form the Quaternary period. The Holocene has been identified with the current warm period, known as MIS 1. It is considered by some to be an interglacial period within the Pleistocene Epoch, called the Flandrian interglacial. The Holocene. An interglacial period is a geological interval of warmer global average temperature lasting thousands of years that separates consecutive glacial periods within an ice age. The current Holocene interglacial began at the end of the Pleistocene, about 11,700 years ago As we are presently in an interglacial, the Holocene, that is moreover predicted to be exceptionally long (Berger and Loutre, 1996, Berger and Loutre, 2002), past interglacials are particularly relevant to better understand our present-day warm climate and hopefully its future Holocen är den pågående geologiska epoken som inleddes för cirka 11 700 år sedan. Enligt Global boundary Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) började holocen cirka 9700 f.Kr. .

QUATERNARY RESEARCH 2, 327-334 (1972) Holocene Interglacial in Central Europe and its Land Snails VOJEN L02EK 1 Received May 10, 1972 The primeval forests of Central Europe are still inhabited by relatively ecologically demanding, thermo- and hydrophilous snail fauna of interglacial character, which differs from the assemblages of Holocene climatic optimum and of the last interglacial optimum. The Eemian was the interglacial period which began about 130,000 years ago at the end of the Penultimate Glacial Period and ended about 115,000 years ago at the beginning of the Last Glacial Period. It corresponds to Marine Isotope Stage 5e. Although sometimes referred to as the last interglacial, it was the second-to-latest interglacial period of the current Ice Age, the most recent being the Holocene which extends to the present day. The prevailing Eemian climate was, on. It has been adopted by authors who consider that the present (Holocene) interglacial should have the same stage status as previous interglacial events and thus be included in the Pleistocene. In this case, the latter would thus extend to the present day (cf. West, 1968, 1977, 1979; Hyvärinen, 1978) The Holstein interglacial, also called the Mindel-Riss interglacial in the Alpine region, is the third to last major interglacial before the Holocene, the present warm period. It followed directly after the Elster glaciation and came before the Saale glaciation, during the Middle Pleistocene. The more precise timing is controversial since Holstein is commonly correlated to two different marine isotope stages, MIS 11 and MIS 9. This ambiguity is much related to the correlation problem described The graph of 4 Interglacial Data Sets was created by James Covington. It shows the temperature for the last four interglacial periods. Each interglacial has it's own color: Red - The Holocene, from 18,000 years ago until today (We are here...) Green - The Eemian, from 136,000 years ago until 110,000 years ag
The Holocene Climate Optimum was a warm period during roughly the interval 9,000 to 5,000 years BP, with a thermal maximum around 8000 years BP. It has also been known by many other names, such as Altithermal, Climatic Optimum, Holocene Megathermal, Holocene Optimum, Holocene Thermal Maximum, Hypsithermal, and Mid-Holocene Warm Period. This warm period was followed by a gradual decline until about two millennia ago. For other temperature fluctuations, see temperature record. For. We are in the current Holocene interglacial, which began about 11,500 years ago. As mentioned elsewhere, the middle of the Holocene was warmer than today, at least during summer in the Northern Hemisphere, due to changes in Earth's orbit changing the distribution of solar radiation received on Earth
It was officially endorsed by the U.S. Commission on Stratigraphic Nomenclature in 1969. The Holocene represents the most recent interglacial interval of the Quaternary Period. The preceding and substantially longer sequence of alternating glacial and interglacial ages is the Pleistocene Epoch We therefore argue that the climate of the Holocene differed from that of the last interglacial period in two ways: first, larger remnant glacial ice sheets acted to cool the early Holocene, and.. This chapter focuses on the changes that took place over the past 11.7 Ka, forming the latest interglacial: the Holocene. Insolation, the amount of heat received due to the motions of the Earth's orbit and the tilt of the Earth's axis was greatest in the Northern Hemisphere at the beginning of the Holocene, but the great North American and Scandinavian ice sheets kept the Northern Hemisphere. Since then, Earth has been in an interglacial period called the Holocene. Glacial periods are colder, dustier, and generally drier than interglacial periods. These glacial-interglacial cycles are apparent in many marine and terrestrial paleoclimate records from around the world

The Eemian Interglacial was a warm period that lasted from ca. 130,000 - 115,000 years ago and was followed by the most recent glacial period (Weichselian/Wisconsinan), which lasted until about 11,000 years ago when the current warm period, the Holocene, began.

Here, we discuss findings from a lacustrine archive that records both the Holocene and the Last Interglacial (LIG) from Greenland, allowing for direct comparison between two interglacials. Sedimentary chironomid assemblages indicate peak July temperatures 4.0 to 7.0 °C warmer than modern during the Early Holocene maximum in summer insolation Jonathan Bamber, in Climate Change (Second Edition), 2016. 3.1 Glacial-Interglacial Cycles. Glacial-interglacial cycles are believed to be driven by changes in the orbital pattern of the Earth that has periods of about 20 ka, 40 ka and 100 ka .During the last glacial cycle, an ice sheet covered most of North America, Eurasia, the Barents Sea and the northern half of the UK
Various large full-interglacial climate changes during the Holocene and certain earlier interglacials (e.g. the Eemian and the Holstein Interglacials in Europe; Winograd et al. 1997) that show up in the Greenland ice cap also seem to correlate with genuinely large climate shifts in Europe and elsewhere, taking conditions from temperate to boreal or even sub-arctic This delayed timing pushes the early Holocene CH 4 peaks into the middle Holocene, and it also suppresses the early Holocene CO 2 peak and its decrease during the late Holocene. The upward CO 2 trend in the obliquity comparison that includes all interglacial stages is the only evidence found here of a trend that agrees with natural explanations of the Holocene CO 2 increase
Glacial-interglacial cycles are believed to be driven by changes in the orbital pattern of the Earth that has periods of about 20 ka, 40 ka and 100 ka . During the last glacial cycle, an ice sheet covered most of North America, Eurasia, the Barents Sea and the northern half of the UK During the mid-Holocene, pronounced short-term variations of up to 2.5°C and a cooling centered at ~ 5 cal ka BP, which coincides with the first Neoglacial glacier advance in the Southern Andes, are recorded. The latest Holocene is characterized by two pronounced cold events centered at ~ 0.6 and 0.25 cal ka BP, i.e., during the Little Ice Age As we've moved from the early to late Holocene, there may be ever-increasing importance on regional-scale drivers with regard to climate change. To accurately assess how climate will change in the future, Holocene Interglacial Last modified by The primeval forests of Central Europe are still inhabited by relatively ecologically demanding, thermo- and hydrophilous snail fauna of interglacial character, which differs from the assemblages of Holocene climatic optimum and of the last interglacial optimum by the absence of some southern (exotic) elements.

A groundbreaking new study in Science suggests warm interglacial-like conditions (surface temperatures within 1°C of today's) persisted from 54 to 42,000 years ago even though CO₂ levels idled around 200 ppm at that time. A sudden geomagnetic shift that intensified galactic cosmic rays and cloud formation and reduced ozone levels ~42,000 years ago resulted in global-scale cooling, rapid. The Holocene warming is an interglacial period and there is no reason to believe that it represents a permanent end to the current ice age. However, the current global warming may result in the Earth becoming warmer than the Eemian Stage, which peaked at roughly 125,000 years ago and was warmer than the Holocene Simulations in the mid-Holocene and last interglacial periods provide an opportunity to examine the impact of two different radiative forcing changes on the climate when other forcings were relatively similar to those present (Otto-Bliesner et al., 2017)
The experimental protocols for simulations of the mid-Holocene (midHolocene, 6000 years before present) and the Last Interglacial (lig127k, 127 000 years before present) are described here The mesocratic phase in the Holocene interglacial stage was greatly modified about 5000-6000 years ago by the onset of forest clearance and prehistoric shifting cultivation and livestock farming (Fig. 1). This new phase, unique to the Holocene is called the Homo sapiensphase (see Box 2)17. There was a steep fall i Brierley, C. M. et al.

In the last glacial-interglacial cycle, the DFe/TDFe ratios were higher during the warm periods (following the post-Industrial Revolution and during the Holocene and last interglacial period) than during the main cold period (i.e. the last glacial maximum (LGM)), indicating that the aeolian input of iron and the iron fertilization effect on the oceans have a non-linear relationship during different periods Holocene sea-level proxy records are more abundant than in past interglacial stages, and considerable effort has gone into developing standardized databases that enable formal statistical analysis at both regional (e.g. Engelhart et al. 2015) and global (e.g. Kopp et al. 2016) scales The last interglacial period has been suggested as an analog for future climate conditions. We found that long-chain alkane δD values from the Eemian are most similar to the earliest Holocene, which corroborate previous pollen studies suggesting a warmer climate at the Faroe Islands during this period

The figure 6(a) shows that it is possible to distinguish statistically groups of age corresponding to the Holocene, the highest marine level during the last interglacial period ( The last interglacial was a warm period that may provide insights into future climates. Here, we compile and analyse stable carbon isotope data from the ocean during the last interglacial and compare it to the Holocene. The data show that Atlantic Ocean circulation was similar during the last interglacial and the Holocene interglacial palaeoclimatic records support the existence of regional quasi-periodic climate variability, it is unlikely. 436 Palaeoclimate Chapter 6 • For the mid-Holocene (about 6 ka), GCMs are able to simulate many of the robust qualitative large-scal
PMIP4 specifies experiment set-ups for two interglacial simulations: the mid-Holocene (MH) at ∼6 ka and the Last Interglacial (LIG) at ∼127 ka (although spanning ∼129 -116 ka in its entirety). These are the two most recent warm periods (particularly in the Northern Hemisphere) in Earth history, and they are of particular interest to PMIP4; indeed, the MH experiment is one of the two.

HOLOCENE INTERGLACIAL ENDING NOW - /sci/ - Science & Math is 4chan's board for the discussion of science and math Climate during the Holocene. The major part of the Greenland ice sheet consists of Holocene ice. The Holocene only spans 11,700 years out of the 123,000 years covered by the NGRIP ice core, but almost half of the NGRIP core consists of Holocene ice. There are two reasons for the large amount of Holocene ice The Last Interglacial (LIG, 130-115 kiloyear (kyr) before present (BP)) and the Holocene (10-0 kyr BP) provide a good test bed for climate models that are used for future climate projections, as the climatic forcings during these interglacial periods are well constrained
This paper defines the spatial trend in sea-level around Australia at 3 timescales, namely at the time of the maximum of the last interglacial around 125000 yr BP, during the Holocene maximum between 5-6000 yr BP and over the last 20 years.

Research output: Contribution to journal › Articl The coincidental rise in CO2 and temperature in the late twentieth century is just that - coincidental. The simple fact that CO2 has risen to concentrations not seen in twelve million years while temperatures remain smack in the middle of our Holocene interglacial twelve thousand years proves that CO2 has an insignificant effect on climate

W hen paleoclimatologists gathered in 1972 to discuss how and when the present warm period would end (), a slide into the next glacial seemed imminent. But more recent studies point toward a different future: a long interglacial that may last another 50,000 years. An interglacial is an uninterrupted warm interval during which global climate reaches at least the preindustrial level of. The scaling spectra F 2 (s) for the EDC core split into (a) interglacial periods: Holocene (0-12 kyr BP), MIS 2 (113-130 kyr BP), MIS 5e (235-243 kyr BP) and MIS 11. The bulk Srxs/Caxs ratio shows at least two marine events during the Eemian interglacial, while in the recent sapropel only one marine ingression is documented.

Abstract. Coastal southeast South America is one of the classic locations where there are robust, spatially extensive records of past high sea level. Sea-level proxies interpreted as last interglacial (Marine Isotope Stage 5e, MIS 5e) exist along the length of the Uruguayan and Argentinian coast with exceptional preservation especially in Patagonia A variety of proxy records provide detailed temporal and spatial information concerning climate change during the current interglacial, the Holocene, an approximately 11.6 kyr period of increasingly intense anthropogenic modifications of the local (e.g., land use) to global (e.g., atmospheric composition) environment Keywords: evolution / models / Holocene / temperatures / reconstructions / Last Interglacial Period / Retreating Ice Scifeed alert for new publications Never miss any articles matching your research from any publishe The Earth's average temperature has changed over the last 500,000 years.

The Holocene is the current geological epoch.It is the latter epoch of the Quaternary period, extending from approximately 11.7 thousand years ago to present times. The Holocene begins at the end of the last major ice age and marks a warm period between ice ages.The Holocene is characterized with variable climate changes, from both natural and anthropogenic (human) causes
Since the Holocene Climate Optimum 8,000 years ago, Greenland's temperature declined by 4.9 degrees Celsius to its lowest trough in 1700. The subsequent 1700-2016 trough-to-peak temperature rise is the largest temperature increase in 8,000 years The current geologic time period is known as the Holocene. This epoch began about 11,000 years ago which was the end of the last glacial period and the end of the Pleistocene epoch. The Pleistocene was an epoch of cool glacial and warmer interglacial periods which began about 1.8 million years ago . These beds, south of Gothenburg, have been uplifted and are exposed at the surface. The boundary is dated.
Scientists have resolved a key climate change mystery, the Holocene temperature conundrum. They are the Last Interglacial period from 128,000 to 115,000 years ago and the Holocene the most recent interglacial epochs and speciﬁcally the cur-rent interglacial (the Holocene) and the previous interglacial (the Last Interglacial, LIG) periods (Fig. 1). These two ex-periments are of interest because they examine the response of the climate system to relatively simple changes in forcing compared to present Holocene, whose mechanism and pattern were analogical. After analyzing the records of millenni-al climate abrupt change events from this work, Ice Cores and others, it was concluded that cli-mate was instability in the interglacial period.

Atmospheric CO 2 during the Last Interglacial was comparable to the pre-industrial Holocene and reasonably stable, which prevents the period being a good analogue for future climate. Today, atmospheric CO 2 is much higher; ~390 ppm and increasing by ~2 ppm yr -1 , giving a higher contribution to radiative forcing than would be expected during the Last Interglacial However, such knowledge is limited in Australia and the wider Southern Hemisphere. We aim to identify potential climatic and environmental drivers of Holocene heathland development in temperate‐oceanic Australia (Bass Strait), and also assess the applicability of Iversen's conceptual model of interglacial vegetation development to the area

The Holocene is a brief flash of time compared to previous epochs and is, in reality, just an interglacial period of the current ice age. All of recorded human history has occurred entirely within the Holocene During interglacial epochs, the summertime surface warming over the subtropical North Pacific is much weaker than over Eurasia due to the large thermal inertia of the ocean to increased insolation, and the WNPSH is intensified as a response to the suppressed latent heating over the subtropical North Pacific Orwellian Erasure of Interglacial Optimum Article. There was formerly an individual article on the Interglacial Maximum (or Interglacial Optimum) of the Holocene, which described in detail the climate history of the period approximately 8000-3000 BC, complete with graph showing temperatures rising out of the last ice age, reaching a maximum much warmer than today, and then wobbling downwards.
