A continuous deuterium profile along the 160,000-year Vostok ice core (Antarctica) is interpreted in terms of atmospheric temperature changes. This climatic record is the awaited terrestrial complement of the deep-sea records supporting the existence of a relation between the Pleistocene climate and orbital forcing.
