Ein geophysikalisches Eiszeit-Modell

H. Flohn
Based on recent advances in many geophysical sciences — glaciology, meteorology, oceanography, paleomagnetics, tectonophysics — a synthetic geophysical Ice Age model is derived as a base for further discussion. Special attention is devoted to the heat budget of oceans. The principal features of this model can be summarized as follows: 1) The primary prerequisite of the Pleistocene and Permo-Carboniferous glaciations is the drift of an isolated continental fragment — Antarctica in the Tertiary Era, Gondwanaland...
