ABSTRACT
The article presents a response by F. Parrenin et al. to a comment on their paper "The EDC3 Chronology for the EPICA Dome C Ice Core" that was published in a previous issue of the journal. The authors admit several flaws in the study based on uncertainties in several factors, including the use of air content as a tuning parameter, changing differences in gas/solid ages within and between ice cores, and the assumption that 18Oatm. has had a fixed phase versus insolation forcing.

    The significance of the apparent 1470 years cycle in the recurrence of the Dansgaard-Oeschger (DO) events, observed in the Greenland ice cores, is debated. Here we present statistical significance tests of this periodicity. The detection of a periodicity relies strongly on the accuracy of the...

    Variability of subtropical cell (STC) overturning in the upper Pacific Ocean is examined in a coupled climate model in light of large observed changes in STC transport. In a 1000-yr control run, modeled STC variations are smaller than observed, but correlate in a similar way with low-frequency...
