    The marine Eocene-Oligocene transition of 34 million years ago was a critical turning point in Earth's climatic history, when the warm, high-diversity "greenhouse" world of the early Eocene ceded to the glacial, "icehouse" conditions of the early Oligocene. This book surveys the advances in stratigraphic and paleontological research and isotopic analysis made since in regard to marine.   The abrupt shift to glacial conditions near the Eocene-Oligocene (E-O) boundary ∼ million years ago (Ma) is characterized by a ∼+ per mil (‰) change in oxygen isotopic (δ 18 O) values of benthic foraminifera (1–3) in ∼, years, which is indicative of continential ice accumulation and high-latitude cooling, and an ∼1-km deepening of the global calcite compensation depth Cited by:

      The Eocene/Oligocene boundary, at about Myr ago, marks one of the largest extinctions of marine invertebrates in the Cenozoic period1. For example, turnover of mollusc species in Cited by:   1. Introduction. Distinctly increasing benthic foraminifer δ 18 O values across the Eocene–Oligocene transition (EOT; ~ 34 Ma) are universally regarded to at least partly reflect the onset of major continental glaciation on Antarctica (e.g., Miller et al., , Zachos et al., ).More detailed analysis revealed that the EOT is characterized by at least two distinct ‘shifts’ in Cited by:

[1] A high‐resolution environmental magnetic study of the Massignano section, Italy (Global Stratotype Section and Point for the Eocene‐Oligocene boundary), has been performed to test whether a clear magnetic signature associated with climatic change is recognizable in this record. Our results reveal the existence of alternating intervals with high and low magnetic mineral concentrations Cited by:

Summary. The transition from the Eocene to the Oligocene epochs was the most significant event in earth history since the extinction of dinosaurs. As the first Antarctic ice sheets appeared, major extinctions and faunal turnovers took place on the land and in the sea, eliminating forms adapted to a tropical world and replacing them with the ancestors of most of our modern animal and plant life.

Through a detailed study of climatic conditions and of organisms buried in Eocene-Oligocene sediments, this volume shows that the separation of Antarctica from Australia was a critical factor in changing oceanic circulation and ultimately world climate.

In this book forty-eight leading scientists examine the full range of Eocene and Oligocene : Paperback. Eocene-Oligocene Climatic and Biotic Evolution. The transition from the Eocene to the Oligocene epochs was the most significant event in earth history since the extinction of dinosaurs.
