The response of northern extratropical climate and vegetation to orbitally induced changes in insolation during the last interglaciation


This paper presents Atmospheric General Circulation Model (AGCM) simulations of the effect of orbital variations on northern hemisphere extratropical climates. The goal is to use these simulations to help explain observed paleoenvironmental changes during the last interglaciation. The simulations are offered as sensitivity studies, i.e., the AA. focus on the effects of orbital variations and do not consider the possible further effects of other climatic controls such as atmospheric CO[2]. Simulated regional climate changes have been translated into biome changes using a physiologically based model of global vegetation types
