Southward Shift of the Pacific ITCZ During the Holocene

Sachs, Julian; Blois, Jessica L.; McGee, T.; Walhowe, M.; Haberle, Simon; Clark, Geoffrey; Atahan, P.


The Holocene (0–11.7 ka BP) appears warm and stable in ice core and global temperature reconstructions as well as in transient climate simulations. This seeming quiescence of Earth's climate belies large secular changes in seasonal and zonal mean radiation receipts resulting from variations in orbital precession and obliquity. Here we show that the tropical Pacific, a key mediator of global climate, underwent a profound climatic shift during the Holocene. Hydrogen isotope ratios of the algal...[Show more]
