Today, Tibet is an important heating surface of the atmosphere. However, during the Last Ice Age a c. 2,400,000 square kilometres (930,000 sq mi) ice sheet covered the plateau. Due to its great extent, this glaciation in the subtropics was an important element of radiative forcing. With a much lower latitude, the ice in Tibet reflected at least 4 times more radiation energy per unit area into space than ice at higher latitudes. Thus, what at present adds heat to the atmosphere subtracted it instead.
This cooling had multiple effects on regional climate. Without the thermal low caused by the heating, there was no monsoon over the Indian subcontinent. This lack of monsoon caused extensive rainfall over the Sahara desert, expansion of the Thar desert, more dust deposited into the Arabian Sea, and a lowering of the biotic life zones on the Indian subcontinent. Animals responded to this shift in climate, with the Javan Rusa deer migrating into India
