Milankovitch forcing of fluctuations in the level of tropical lakes from 18 to 0 kyr BP

An atmospheric general-circulation model has been used to simulate the climates of January and July at 3,000-yr intervals. From 15 kyr BP onwards, the model simulates a strengthened monsoon circulation and increased precipitation in t...

Milankovitch cycles and their effects on species in ecological and evolutionary time

The Quaternary ice ages were paced by astronomical cycles with periodicities of 20–100 k.y. (Milankovitch cycles). These cycles have been present throu...

Evidence from north-west Canada for an early Holocene Milankovitch thermal maximum

According to the Milankovitch theory of global climatic change, maximum summer solar radiation at high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere occurred at 10,000 yr BP (refs 1, 2). In particular, it predicts summer solstice radiation gr...

Evolutionary consequences of changes in species' geographical distributions driven by Milankovitch climate oscillations

We suggest Milankovitch climate oscillations as a common cause for geographical patterns in species diversity, species′range sizes, polyploidy, and the...

The Fate of Clades in a World of Recurrent Climatic Change: Milankovitch Oscillations and Evolution

Variations in Earth's orbit with periods of 10-100 thousand years (kyr) (Milankovitch oscillations) have led to recurrent and rapid climatic shifts thro...

On the structure and origin of major glaciation cycles. I: Linear responses to Milankovitch forcing

Time series of ocean properties provide a measure of global ice volume and monitor key features of the wind-driven and density-driven circulations over the past 400,000 years. Cycles with periods near 23,000, 41,000, and 100,000 years...

Filtering of milankovitch cycles by earth's geography

Earth's land-sea distribution modifies the temperature response to orbitally induced perturbations of the seasonal insolation. We examine this modificat...
