Diagnostic For Magnitude Of Tropical Cooling At Last Glacial Maximum

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The LGM Tropical Terrestrial Data Synthesis was used as a diagnostic by Pinot
et al. (1999) and in the IPCC (2001). An updated version of this diagram was
presented by Harrison (2000). In this diagram, the uppermost histogram shows
the frequency of reconstructed temperature changes, based on terrestrial data,
at the elevation of the individual sites colour-coded by region ... View entire text
