Radiolarian-based estimates for intermediate water temperature and SST over time and compared to the benthic foraminifera isotope curve of Sagawa et al. (2018). Dashed curves indicate modern median temperatures. Also shown are the summer SST estimated using the Mg/Ca ratio of planktic foraminifera (Kubota et al. 2010) in the northern Okinawa Trough and bottom water temperature estimated using the Mg/Ca ratio of benthic foraminifera in the southern Okinawa Trough (Kubota et al. 2015b)
