The CO2 record for air bubbles from the Byrd Station ice core suggest a drawdown in the ocean-atmosphere carbon reservoir during the early Holocene. Such a drawdown would require a corresponding increase in the CCO3= ion concentration in the deep sea. We report hem the results of a search in Atlantic sediments for evidence that the lysocline showed a corresponding deepening. While both the pteropod and the calcite preservation records we have obtained are consistent with expectation, they are not conclusive.
