Short summary
Multiple components of the global climate system record a transition ~ 430 ka from lower- to higher-amplitude glacial cycles. Statistical analyses of globally distributed climate proxies show that a sequence of events including persistent Asian summer monsoons, weak glaciation, and reorganization of water masses preceded the transition to higher interglacial values for temperature, atmospheric greenhouse gases, and sea level.
