The mineral component of pelagic sediment is brought to the deep sea by transport in the wind. Extraction and analysis of this dust allows estimation of the past aridity of the eolian source region,
Dissociation of oceanic methane hydrate as a cause of the carbon isotope excursion at the end of the Paleocene
Isotopic records across the “Latest Paleocene Thermal Maximum“ (LPTM) indicate that bottom water temperature increased by more than 4°C during a brief time interval (<104 years) of the latest
Late Cenozoic eolian deposition in the North Pacific: Asian drying
A newly constructed record of eolian dust accumulation from the central North Pacific shows that dust deposition increased by an order of magnitude quite rapidly at 3.6 Ma. We associate this sudden
Provenance of dust in the Pacific Ocean
Late Pleistocene Continental Climate and Oceanic Variability Recorded in Northwest Pacific Sediments
Core V21-146 provides a continuous record of northwest Pacific pelagic sedimentation spanning the past 530,000 years. Downcore variations of δ18O from benthic foraminiferal calcite were correlated to
A direct link between the China loess and marine δ18O records: aeolian flux to the north Pacific
MOST studies of Quaternary climates conducted during the past 150 years have focused on glacial sequences, and for the past 25 years marine sediments have provided significant further understanding
Late Cenozoic deformation and uplift of the NE Tibetan Plateau: Evidence from high-resolution magnetostratigraphy of the Guide Basin, Qinghai Province, China
The Cenozoic intramontane Gonghe–Guide Basin in Qinghai Province, China, is tectonically controlled by the sinistral strike-slip framework of the Kunlun and Altyn Tagh–South Qilian faults in the
