Nonuniform Late Pleistocene glacier fluctuations in tropical Eastern Africa
TLDR
A chronological comparison for the Ethiopian Highlands in comparison with other East African Mountains reveals that glaciers in Eastern Africa responded in a nonuniform way to past climatic changes, indicating a regionally varying influence of precipitation, temperature, and orography on paleoglacier dynamics.
Similar Holocene glaciation histories in tropical South America and Africa
Tropical glaciers have retreated alongside warming temperatures over the past century, yet the way in which these trends fit into a long-term geological context is largely unclear. Here, we present

Jackson et al. provide new evidence for Holocene glacier fluctuations in tropical Eastern Africa based on 10Be surface exposure dating of moraine boulders (n = 4), unassigned boulders (n = 5), and

Large temperature variability in the southern African tropics since the Last Glacial Maximum
The role of the tropics in global climate change is actively debated, particularly in regard to the timing and magnitude of thermal and hydrological response. Continuous, high‐resolution temperature
Tropical ocean‐atmospheric forcing of Late Glacial and Holocene glacier fluctuations in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru
Evaluating the timing and style of past glacier fluctuations in the tropical Andes is important for our scientific understanding of global environmental change. Terrestrial cosmogenic nuclide ages on
Expanded glaciers during a dry and cold Last Glacial Maximum in equatorial East Africa
Glaciers on the world's highest tropical mountains are among the most sensitive components of the cryosphere, yet the climatic controls that infl uence their fl uctuations are not fully under- stood.
A major advance of tropical Andean glaciers during the Antarctic cold reversal
TLDR
A new 10Be moraine chronology in Colombia is presented showing that glaciers in the northern tropical Andes expanded to a larger extent during the Antarcticcold reversal than during the Younger Dryas, and argues for a common glacier response to cold conditions in the Antarctic cold reversal exceeding that of the Younger dryas.
High-latitude warming initiated the onset of the last deglaciation in the tropics
TLDR
This work uses tropical glacial fluctuations to assess the timing of low-latitude temperature changes relative to global climate forcings and reports 10Be ages of moraines in tropical East Africa and South America and shows that glaciers reached their maxima at ~29 to 20 ka, during the global Last Glacial Maximum.
Northern Hemisphere Controls on Tropical Southeast African Climate During the Past 60,000 Years
The processes that control climate in the tropics are poorly understood. We applied compound-specific hydrogen isotopes (δD) and the TEX86 (tetraether index of 86 carbon atoms) temperature proxy to
North Atlantic forcing of Amazonian precipitation during the last ice age
The last glacial period was marked by rapid reorganizations of oceanic and atmospheric circulation. Speleothem records from the Amazon Basin suggest that precipitation variability was linked to these
Tropical climate changes at millennial and orbital timescales on the Bolivian Altiplano
TLDR
Sediment cores and down-hole logging results of deep drilling in the Salar de Uyuni show that at both millennial and orbital timescales, cold sea surface temperatures in the high-latitude North Atlantic were coeval with wet conditions in tropical South America, suggesting a common forcing.
