Although changes in sea-ice cover contribute to global climatic variations, they are poorly constrained for periods

earlier than the last decades. More records are especially required around Antarctica, where the formation of

Antarctic Bottom Waters participates to global thermohaline circulation. However, this region provided only a few

marine sediment cores spanning the entire Holocene, especially because of generally low sedimentation rates. This

study focuses on marine sediment core ANTA99-CJ5 (73

49’S; 175

39’E), located in the open sea ice zone (OSIZ)

of the western Ross Sea. We analyzed several lipid biomarkers: highly branched isoprenoids (HBIs), sterols, diols

and GDGTs. The combination of several biomarkers and the comparison of these results with a diatom record

previously published on the same core enabled us to trace past changes in temperatures as well as in sea-ice

condition over the last 11,600 years.
