The detection of the variation in the heat transfer during the last 130.000 years relies on time series with high resoution of the sea surface temperatures from the equatorial Atlantic Ocean. The research comprises the dating of the temporal variations during the last 130.000 years of the thermohaline circulation in that area through a palaeoproductivity analysis.
