Sea level affected tropics in ice age

University of Hawaii at Manoa researchers have investigated preserved geological rainfall pattern clues, or “proxies”, during the last ice age and linked sea level to climate change.

Researchers compared rainfall patterns with computer model simulations in order to find a physical explanation for the patterns gathered from the proxies.

The study reveals unique rainfall change over the Indo-Pacific warm pool caused by the lowered sea level effects on the configuration of the Indonesian archipelago.
