Examples

  • The Quaternary Period (the last 1.6 My) has been characterized by periodic climatic variations during which the global climate system has switched between interglacial and glacial stages, with further subdivision into stadials (shorter cold periods) and interstadials (shorter mild episodes).

  • These include sudden cold events (Heinrich events/stadials), warm events (Interstadials) and the beginning and ending of long warm phases, such as the Eemian interglacial.

  • No one can prove predictions until the future comes to pass, but strong evidence suggests that over the last 1.6 million years interglacials have been short-lived compared to glacial stadials, both of which have occurred at regular periodic intervals.

    Watts Up With That?

  • The theory would help explain the dry conditions in southeast Africa during the stadials, Tierney and Russell said, because Indian Ocean surface temperatures would be cooler, and less moisture would be picked up by the prevailing winds.

  • In addition, the team found climatic changes that occurred during stadials (cold snaps that occur during glacial periods), such as during the Younger Dryas, suddenly swung rainfall patterns in southeast Africa.
