Publication: High dependence of Ordovician ocean surface circulation on atmospheric CO2 levels

Highlights We model Early, Middle and Late Ordovician ocean surface circulation. Our basemaps are fully compatible with the most recent palaeontological databases. Synthetic maps are produced to aid the interpretation of palaeobiogeographical data. Major patterns of modelled ocean surface circulation … Continue reading
