Zur meteorologischen Interpretation der pleistozänen Klimaschwankungen

Some general problems of the Pleistocene climatic fluctuations are discussed from a meteorological view-point, with special reference to the mass and heat budget. Among these are: the occurrence of alternating pluvial epochs, either of tropical or of polar origin, where only the latter can be synchronized with the glacial epochs, the hypothesis of a steady lowering of the interglacial ocean levels as caused by the gradual building-up of the antarctic ice-cap since the early Pleistocene,...
