Summary
Abstract: Paleoclimate records indicate that the strength of the Asian summer monsoon is
sensitive to orbital forcing at the obliquity and precession periods (41,000
and 23,000 years, respectively) and the extent of Northern Hemisphere
glaciation. Over the past 2.6 million years, the timing (phase) of strong
monsoons has changed by ~83° in the precession and ~124° in the obliquity
bands relative to the phase of maximum global ice-volume (inferred from the
marine d18O record). These results suggest that one or both of these systems
is nonstationary relative to orbital forcing.
