Sensitivity of the Australian Monsoon to insolation and vegetation: Implications for human impact on continental moisture balance

Miller, Gifford Hubbs; Mangan, Jennifer; Pollard, David; Thompson, Stanley; Felzer, Benjamin; Magee, John


General circulation model experiments test the geologically based correlation of high monsoon rainfall over interior Australia with Northern Hemisphere insolation and evaluate the sensitivity of the Australian Monsoon to ecosystem change. Our results suggest that Northern Hemisphere insolation control on the intensity of the Siberian High, rather than summer insolation over the Australian continent, determines the strength of the Australian Monsoon on millennial time scales, unlike a classic...[Show more]
