Abstract

... During periods of rapid ice accretion, high latitude North Atlantic surface waters remain warm while summer insolation decreases. This lag effect has been documented for the isotopic 5a/4transition. Thus an open moisture source exists adjacent to cooling snow-covered land masses. The latent heat provided by the warm oceans helps fuel glacial growth.
