Abstract

An age model (Mark et al., 2017) for ODP 758 and the Matuyama-Brunhes boundary transition and Termination IX in the equatorial Indian Ocean is robust and accurate. No significant magnetic lock-in delay is evident at the depth of the Matuyama-Brunhes boundary and the study highlights that 40Ar/39Ar geochronology is critical for dissection of the Pleistocene at the highest levels of temporal precision and minimal model-dependence. Testing of leads and lags in global-scale climate response requires independently dated timescales to reveal the fine-detail recorded by the various climate archives.
