Three recent studies from the Past Interglacials Working Group (PIGS):
1) Pol K et al. look at climate variability during the last interglacial in the E Antarctic EPICA Dome C ice core (Geo Res Let).
2) Martrat B et al. compare similarities and dissimilarities between the last two deglaciations and interglaciations in the N Atlantic region (Quat Sci Rev).
3) Mokeddem, McManus and Oppo discuss how ocean dynamics may have contributed to the end of the last interglacial in the subpolar N Atlantic (PNAS).
