Possible Effects of Orbital Variations on Past Sources and Transports of Eolian Material: Estimates from General Circulation Model Experiments
Paleoclimate simulation experiments for various orbital configurations of precession, tilt and eccentricity (for 9000 and 125,000 years ago) and for glacial-age boundary conditions (for 18,000 years ago) provide examples of possible variations in sources/sinks and transports of eolian material. These types of experiments are likely to play an increasingly important role in helping to interpret the eolian sediment record.
