High-resolution spectral analyses of four climate proxies from Massignano, Italy (Eocene-Oligocene boundary global stratotype section and point [GSSP]), indicate that the deposition of this rhythmically bedded sedimentary sequence was controlled by Milankovitch orbital cycles. An inverse relationship between the magnetic susceptibility record and the co-varied calcium carbonate, δ18O, and δ13C records is indicative of a climate model in which limestones represent dry/cold periods, while marly limestones represent warm/wet periods. Through pattern matching of band-pass filtered signals with the La2004 eccentricity curve, we propose an astrochronological calibration for this important time period. Constrained by three radioisotopically dated...
