On CLIMAP, Guilderson contends that the older study may have missed changes in the tropics because two of the dominant plankton species in the region can withstand big temperature changes and could have continued to inhabit the tropics even if the ocean cooled significantly.
It would also suggest that the tropics are more sensitive to climate change than the CLIMAP results indicate.
The COHMAP model used the CLIMAP sea-surface temperature estimates; as previously mentioned, the difference between mountain and sea-surface estimates from the tropics has not been explained satisfactorily.
Sea surface temperatures estimated by CLIMAP were 2 [degrees] to 4 [degrees] C colder than present throughout the year over most of the area (Moore et al.
