The new three-dimensional sedimentation model sedlob (SEDimentation in Large Ocean Basins) is used to simulate the climatically driven Quaternary sedimentation history of the northern North Atlantic. The forward model sedlob is driven by the thermohaline oceanic circulation and coupled to an ocean general-circulation model. Glacial and interglacial periods produce distinct basinwide sediment accumulation patterns that are strongly influenced by the prescribed sediment input and its physical properties. Taking into account the stratigraphic succession of glacial and interglacial time periods measured in sediment cores with high precision, it is possible to stack the typical sedimentation patterns to a climatically induced sediment fill of an ocean basin. Examples with maps and synthetic cross sections are presented for the northern North Atlantic using stratigraphic data from sediment cores covering the last 2.62 m.y.
