The extremely energetic events of the Genesis Flood likely would have left the oceans warmer than today and relatively uniform from top to bottom and from equator to pole. Volcanic activity during and following the Flood likely would have caused rapid cooling at the top of the atmosphere, in polar regions, and over continents. The contrast between the warm oceans and cooler continents and polar regions would have resulted in greater storminess and a more intense global atmospheric circulation than observed today. This paper describes a conceptual model of the transition in global circulation, cloudiness, and precipitation from the end of the Flood to that of today. The model will be applied specifically to the interpretation of the ice core record at Camp Century, Greenland.
