Abstract:
The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), a period of abrupt and significant global warming, is one of the most dramatic climate events in the history of our planet. Long-term climatic change within the overall greenhouse climate of the Eariy Paleogene was also investigated. The Early Eocene Climatic Optimum (EECO) at 52 Ma marks what is believed to be a temperature maximum for the Paleogene.
