|Summary:||Global warming and ice melting in the "tripolar" regions, namely, Antarctica, the Arctic, and the Tibetan Plateau, might lead to a reorganization of the global climate system. Understanding the dynamic links between the "tripolar" environments and the Earth climate system is crucial to improving our capability to project future climate variability. "Tripolar" changes have influenced the onset and evolution of the Asian paleomonsoon system through various atmospheric and/or oceanic mechanisms. Here, we summarize previously reported Asian paleomonsoon variations that can be linked to "tripolar" environmental changes, from tectonic to millennial time scales, and explore linkages between the "tripolar" regions and global climate changes.|
