Phanerozoic  Temperature  Curve,  by  Christopher  R.  Scotese,    PALEOMAP  Project  
 
The  New  and  Improved  Global  Temperature  Curve  for  the  Last  540  Million  Years.    PETM=  Paleocene-­‐
Eocene  Thermal  Maximum  (55.8  Ma),  EEOC  =  Early  Eocene  Climatic  Optimum  (54  Ma  –  46  Ma),  MECO  
=  Mid-­‐Eocene  Climatic  Optimum(42  Ma),  EOT  =  Eocene-­‐Oligocene  Transition  (40  Ma  –  33  Ma),  
MMCO=Mid-­‐Miocene  Climatic  Optimum  (15Ma  –  13Ma),  LGM  =  Last  Glacial  Maximum  (21,000  years  
ago),  2016  =  Modern  MAT,  PAW  =  Post-­‐Anthropogenic  Warming  .    White  stars  indicate  rapid  cooling  
episodes  (Stoll-­‐Schrag  Events26)  at  160Ma,  127Ma,  97Ma,  91Ma,  71Ma,  and  65  Ma).    Black  stars  
represent  rapid  warming  episodes  (Kidder-­‐Worsley  Events16)  at  (Present-­‐day,  15Ma,  43Ma,  56Ma,  
65Ma,  93Ma,  120Ma,  183Ma,  200Ma,  251Ma,  300Ma,  359Ma,  374Ma,  444Ma,  499Ma,  520Ma,  and  542  
Ma).
