- A complete Holocene sequence of loess and buried soils has been studied in Siberia
- Climatic cycles of 1000 and 500 years are revealed using petromagnetic parameters
- Such periods correspond to variations in solar insolation and sun spot activity
- Climatic cyclicity in the continental interior contains also oceanic cycle of 1500 years
We conducted a high-resolution study of a unique Holocene sequence of wind-blown sediments and buried soils in Southern Siberia, far from marine environment influences. This was accomplished in order to assess the difference between North Atlantic marine and in-land climate variations. Relative wind strength was determined by grain size analyses of different stratigraphic units. Petromagnetic measurements were performed to provide a proxy for the relative extent of pedogenesis. An age model for the sections was built using the radiocarbon dating method. The windy periods are associated with the absence of soil formation and relatively low values of frequency dependence of magnetic susceptibility (FD), which appeared to be a valuable quantitative marker of pedogenic activity. These events correspond to colder intervals which registered reduced solar modulation and sun spot number. Events, where wind strength was lower, are characterized by soil formation with high FD values. Spectral analysis of our results demonstrates periodic changes of 1500, 1000 and 500 years of relatively warm and cold intervals during the Holocene of Siberia. We presume that the 1000 and 500 year climatic cycles are driven by increased solar insolation reaching the Earth surface and amplified by other still controversial mechanisms. The 1500 year cycle associated with the North Atlantic circulation appears only in the Late Holocene. Three time periods — 8400–9300 years BP, 3600–5100 years BP, and the last ~ 250 years BP — correspond to both the highest sun spot number and the most developed soil horizons in the studied sections.
"How The Sun Could Control Earth's Temperature"
In summary,variations in the mix of wavelengths and particles from the sun affect atmospheric chemistry especially involving ozone so as to alter the slope of tropopause height between poles and equator which allows the climate zones to slide to and fro latitudinally beneath the tropopause.
Such a mechanism links changes in solar activity, ozone amounts in the stratosphere hence stratosphere temperatures,latitudinal jetstream shifting with consequent cloudiness changes (no need for Svensmark) and changes in both ENSO (the relative power of El Nino and La Nina events) plus the long term modulating effect of other ocean cycles and the thermohaline circulation.
As far as I know I present the only coherent overview currently available which fits observations and basic physical principles.
