  • Temporal changes in solar radiation caused by variations in the Earth's orbit figure prominently in current Quaternary climate theory1–4. Experimental design of atmospheric circulation models emphasizes the importance of solar radiation in the heating of interglacial land and ocean surfaces at different seasons of the year, whereby monsoon-type circulation—seasonal shifting of regional cyclonic and anticyclonic centres—develops, while during glacial ages, seasonality is greatly modified by the… CONTINUE READING
