Abstract: Abstract: The response of Asian monsoon variability to orbital forcing is still unclear, and all hypotheses are controversial. We present a record of the sea surface temperature difference (ΔSST) between the South China Sea and the other Western Pacific Warm Pool regions as a proxy for the intensity of the Asian winter monsoon, because the winter cooling of the South China Sea is caused by the cooling of surface water at the northern margin and the southward advection of cooled water due to winter monsoon winds. The ΔSST showed significant precession cycles during the last 150 kyr. In the precession cycle, the maximum winter monsoon intensity shown by the ΔSST corresponded to the May perihelion and was delayed behind the maximum ice volume. The East Asian winter monsoon was anti-phase with the Indian summer monsoon and the summer monsoon precipitation in central Japan. The timing of the maximum phase of the East Asian winter monsoon was different from previous results in terms of the March perihelion (ice volume maxima) and June perihelion (minimum of Northern Hemisphere winter insolation). We infer that the variation of the East Asian winter monsoon was caused by a physical mechanism of inter-hemispheric heat balance. The East Asian winter monsoon was intensified by the Northern Hemisphere cooling, which was caused by the combined effect of cooling by the ice volume forcing and the decrease in winter insolation, or by decreased heat transfer from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere owing to the weak Indian summer monsoon at the May perihelion.
