                         were previously reported for Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 5, but 
                         open questions remain regarding the climatic mechanisms and the 
                         periodicity of such changes. Based on two marine sediment cores, 
                         we provide evidence for multiple intensifications of the upwelling 
                         regime off the Southeast Brazilian margin (SBM) during several 
                         interglacials and highlight the major role of eccentricity as the 
                         responsible forcing. In addition, we show a two-step change in the 
                         upwelling regime across the Mid-Brunhes Event (MBE) and an 
                         increase in the amplitude of upwelling variability after this 
                         climatic transition. Our findings point to substantial 
                         modifications of the upwelling regions during several 
                         glacial-interglacial transitions that probably altered the 
                         regional marine productivity regime and the carbon budget.",
