Understanding the influence of solar variability on the Earth's climate requires knowledge of solar variability, solar‐terrestrial interactions, and the mechanisms determining the response of the
A database and synthesis of northern peatland soil properties and Holocene carbon and nitrogen accumulation
Here, we present results from the most comprehensive compilation of Holocene peat soil properties with associated carbon and nitrogen accumulation rates for northern peatlands. Our database consists
Evidence from northwest European bogs shows ‘Little Ice Age’ climatic changes driven by variations in solar activity
Fluctuations in Holocene atmospheric radiocarbon concentrations have been shown to be due to variations in solar activity. Analyses of both 10Be and 14C nuclides con” rm that production-rate changes
Changes in solar activity and Holocene climatic shifts derived from 14C wiggle-match dated peat deposits
Closely spaced sequences of accelerator mass spectrometer (AMS) 14C dates of peat deposits display century-scale wiggles which can be fitted to the radiocarbon calibration curve. By wiggle-matching
Long-term effects of climate change on vegetation and carbon dynamics in peat bogs
Abstract Questions: What are the long-term effects of climate change on the plant species composition and carbon sequestration in peat bogs? Methods: We developed a bog ecosystem model that includes
Climatic change in Chile at around 2700 BP and global evidence for solar forcing: a hypothesis
Palaeoecological and geological evidence for changing atmospheric circulation patterns in Chile indicates that equatorward and poleward shifts of the Southern Westerlies (Pacific precipitation
Two decadally resolved records from north‐west European peat bogs show rapid climate changes associated with solar variability during the mid–late Holocene
Two 14C accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) wiggle‐match dated peat sequences from Denmark and northern England record changes in mire surface wetness reconstructed using plant macrofossil and
Solar forcing of climatic change during the mid-Holocene: indications from raised bogs in The Netherlands
Two cores of mid-Holocene raised-bog deposits from the Netherlands were 14C wiggle-match dated at high precision. Changes in local moisture conditions were inferred from the changing species
Environmental history of the dry forest biome of Guerrero, Mexico, and human impact during the last c. 2700 years
Two lake sediment cores from Madre del Sur mountain range,Guerrero State, west-central Mexico were studied to examine the pastdynamics of the dry forest biome. Pollen, spores of coprophilousfungi,
