Sea surface and high-latitude temperature sensitivity to radiative forcing of climate over several glacial cycles
Acompilation is presented of global sea surface temperature (SST) records that span around one glacial cycle or more, and it is compared with changes in the earth's radiative balance over the last 520 000 years, as determined from greenhouse gas concentrations, albedo changes related to ice sheet area and atmospheric dust fluctuations, and insolation changes. A first scenario uses global mean values for the radiative changes, and a second scenario uses zonal means for 10° latitude bands for a...[Show more]
