Lorenz) with its high number of degrees of freedom and its non-linearities. Taking the parallel fluctuations of ambient temperature and carbon dioxide in Greenland ice-cores as an example, the rapid changes of C02, water vapour and mid-tropospheric temperatures observed during the last 20-30 years in relation to El Nino-Southern Oscillation events in the equatorial region suggest a mechanism for a rational interpretation of such fluctuations under natural conditions. INTRODUCTION During recent years, the occurrence of abrupt climatic changes during the earth's history has aroused much interest (Flohn, 1979; Kukla, 1980; Ghazi, 1983; Morner and Karlen, 1984).
