Influence of the tropics and southern westerlies on glacial interhemispheric asymmetry
During the last glacial period and deglaciation, climate shifts in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres occurred asynchronously, cooling in one coinciding with warming in the other1-6. This asymmetry has been attributed to the phenomenon known as the bipolar seesaw1, which, in turn, has been linked to latitudinal shifts of the southern westerly wind belt2. The southern westerlies substantially determine the location of the oceanic Subtropical Front. A more poleward location of the Subtropical...[Show more]
