A class of climate models describing the dynamics of the sea ice‐ocean surface temperature interactions is considered. The coupling mechanism between different spatial regions is analyzed, and the possibility of inhomogeneous phase shifted states is established. It is concluded that many major climatic transitions should occur in an asynchronous fashion. A new examination of the climatic record seems therefore to be necessary, in the light of this possibility.
