Abstract
    This multi-proxy study of IODP Site U1387 (Faro Drift) aims to reconstruct the history of the surface water and the Mediterranean Outflow Water (MOW) during the interval from 630 to 1100ka, i.e. the Mid-Pleistocene Transition. Surface and MOW experienced orbital- and millennial-scale variations. MOW related proxies show a tight coupling to insolation with poor ventilation during insolation maxima and contourite layers being formed by a faster flowing MOW during insolation minima.
