Ocean Cooling Pattern at the Last Glacial Maximum

Figure 2

Latitudinal cross-sections of global mean (a) and ocean basins (b through c). The abscissa is latitude in degrees and the ordinate is water depth in meters. Notice that depth is unevenly distributed. The temperature anomaly is in °C. Cooling occurs mostly in the upper ocean. Cooling in the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans is deeper than in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
(a) Global
(b) Atlantic + Arctic
(c) Pacific + Indian
