Quick Reference

Very rapid climate changes—up to 7 °C in some fifty years—during the Quaternary period, especially during the most recent glacial cycle. The cause of D–O cycles has yet to be comprehensively established. See Genty et al. (2003) Nature 421 on the precise dating of Dansgaard–Oeschger climate oscillations in western Europe.
