Abstract

We exemplify how insolation at different latitudes and different times of day can explain the timing of the Devil's Hole δ18O record. We combine winter tropical noontime insolation and summer extra-tropical noontime insolation. Periods of low winter and high summer insolation are called 'radiation windows' and yield drier-warmer conditions in the Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes. When radiation windows are compared with the DH-11 record, the apparent contradiction with Milankovitch may be resolved.
