Rapid increases of atmospheric CO2 during deglaciation

Using high-resolution, precision isotope measurements of carbon dioxide trapped in ice from the Taylor Glacier, Antarctica, a study identifies instances of abrupt rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations during the deglaciation between 20,000 and 10,000 years ago, including two escalations likely linked to the rapid loss of terrestrial organic matter during cold, dry climatic periods that lasted a few hundred years. - See at PNAS.org
