Sample text

Notable reduction over the Scandinavian and Laurentide ice sheets and a reduction of the monsoonal rainfall over Southeast Asia. Associated with the southward shift to about l0°S of the Indian monsoon cell, is an increase of the precipitation along the eastern coast of Central Africa, extending over the Mediterranean (such features of the precipitation difference field are not evident in other simulations like Manabe and Hahn, 1977). Evaporation was less in this region during the ice-age. It must be stressed here that during the peak of the last cold period, stepps (not woodlands) were the characteristic elements in the northern Mediterranean indicating that precipitation was considerably lower (Frenzel, 1973).
