Oxygent isotopic analysis of a long piston core from the western equatorial Pacific has produced a record for the entire Brunhes epoch. This record can be correlated point by point with the isotopic records of previously analyzed Atlantic and Caribbean cores, leading to the construction of a generalized temperature curve for the entire Brunhes epoch.
