This study presents radiolarian microfossil-based temperature reconstructions for the eastern North Pacific spanning the past 20,000 yr to examine possible correlations and linkages between continental climate change and changes in sea surface temperature (SST) in the northeastern Pacific Ocean on millennial time scales. The AA. conclude that changes in the past latitudinal position of the North Pacific Drift played a significant role in controlling continental climate immediately to its east; and that during the past 20,000 yr much of the evolution of oceanographic change is related to the migration of the atmospheric pressure cells
