Quantifying the rise of the Himalaya orogen and implications for the South Asian monsoon
We reconstruct the rise of a segment of the southern flank of the Himalaya-Tibet orogen, to the south of the Lhasa terrane, using a paleoaltimeter based on paleoenthalpy encoded in fossil leaves fromExpand
New developments in CLAMP: Calibration using global gridded meteorological data
Abstract Climate Leaf Analysis Multivariate Program (CLAMP) is a versatile technique for obtaining quantitative estimates for multiple terrestrial palaeoclimate variables from woody dicot leafExpand
Comparison of the Tertiary flora of southwest China and northeast India and its significance in the antiquity of the modern Himalayan flora
Abstract A comparison has been made between the Tertiary floras of southwest China and northeast India in order to trace the antiquity of the Chinese elements in the present Himalayan flora ofExpand
Paleogene monsoons across India and South China: Drivers of biotic change
Monsoonal climates at low latitudes (< 32°N) are an inevitable consequence of seasonal migrations of the Inter-tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), but the character of these monsoons depends onExpand
Leaf form-climate relationships on the global stage: an ensemble of characters
Aim Early in their evolution, angiosperms evolved a diversity of leaf form far greater than that of any other group of land plants. Some of this diversity evolved in response to varying climate. OurExpand
Study of fossil wood from the Middle–Late Miocene sediments of Dhemaji and Lakhimpur districts of Assam, India and its palaeoecological and palaeophytogeographical implications
In order to reconstruct the palaeoclimate, a number of fossil wood pieces were collected and investigated from two new fossil localities situated in the Dhemaji and Lakhimpur districts of Assam. TheyExpand
Study of fossil wood from the upper Tertiary sediments (Siwalik) of Arunachal Pradesh, India and its implication in palaeoecological and phytogeographical interpretations
Abstract Ten species of fossil dicotyledonous woods are described from the upper Tertiary sediments (Siwalik Group) of the northeast Himalayan foot hills (Arunachal Pradesh State), India. They showExpand
Cool equatorial terrestrial temperatures and the South Asian monsoon in the Early Eocene: Evidence from the Gurha Mine, Rajasthan, India
Abstract Early Eocene (~ 55–52 Ma) laminated lacustrine sediments overlying lignites in the Gurha Mine (27.87398°N, 72.86709°E), Rajasthan, India, yield a diversity of fossil leaves, flowers, fruits,Expand
Megaremains from the Siwalik Sediments of West and East Kameng Districts, Arunachal Pradesh
The present fossil material comprising both dicotyledonous and monocotyledonous leaf impressions, was collected from the Siwalik sediments of West and East Kameng districts, Arunachal Pradesh, India.Expand
Emergence and extinction of Dipterocarpaceae in western India with reference to climate change: Fossil wood evidences
Climate has played a crucial role in assigning a different kind of topography to Rajasthan and Gujarat since the Cenozoic time. Evidently, three genera, namely, Dipterocarpus Gaert. f., Hopea Roxb.Expand
