Relationships between mountain uplift and regional climate
There have been significant developments in modeling over recent years which can now better analyze the impact of mountain range evolution on regional climate. The authors of this study performed a set of sensitivity experiments using a high-resolution global atmospheric model to explore how the uplift of the northern Tibetan Plateau, the Tianshan Mountains and the Mongolian Plateau over the last 40 million years ago has affected inland aridity and monsoon variation. The findings provide useful insights to our current understanding of the relation between mountain uplift and Asian climate change in the past.
