Abstract
    The δ18O of the planktonic foraminifer Globigerinoides ruber reflects both changes in temperature (~3°C) and in δ18O water, while the isotope analyses of the benthic species Uvigerina peregrina and Buliminia aculeata predominantly reflect the wax and wane of ice sheets. Therefore, the curve of the benthic species is more smoothed and reached its postglacial minimum later than the curve of Globigerinoides ruber. The early Holocene increase in the δ13C occurs earlier in the bottom water species Uvigerina peregrina than in the surface water species Globigerinoides ruber
