Resumo

During the Younger Dryas (YD), paleoceanographic proxies indicate a weakening of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) resulting in a widespread surface cooling of the North Atlantic and a southward displacement of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). In the western tropical Atlantic, competing ocean and atmospheric processes may result in contrasting surface hydrography scenarios north and south of the equator during the YD. Based on new and compiled data, we provide an up-to-date model-data comparison of changes in western tropical Atlantic surface hydrography during the YD. We show that both transient model simulations and proxy results indicate warming of sea surface temperatures (SST) in the western tropical South Atlantic, but disagree for the SST in the western tropical North Atlantic. Proxies also reveal a complex spatial pattern in surface salinity in the western tropical Atlantic, while a broad negative anomaly is observed in the model output. By comparing planktonic foraminiferal Ba/Ca records from different records in the western tropical Atlantic we constrain ITCZ shifts from the YD to the early Holocene. Based on the Ba/Ca records, the ITCZ reached its southernmost position between 13 and 11.8 ka and started to move northward reaching its northernmost position between 10.8 and 9.7 ka. (AU)
