Synchronous Tropical South China Sea SST Change and Greenland Warming During Deglaciation
Alkenone sea surface temperature records from the tropical South China Sea are presented that show an abrupt temperature increase of at least 1°C at the end of the last glacial period, synchronous with the Bølling warming observed at 14.6 thousand years ago.
Synchroneity of meltwater pulse 1a and the Bolling warming:New evidence from the South China Sea
A twofold decrease in long-chain n -alcane ( n -nonacosane) concentrations in a downcore record from the northern South China Sea indicates a rapid drop in the supply of terrigenous organic matter to
Palaeoclimatic insights into forcing and response of monsoon rainfall
Palaeoclimatic evidence of monsoon rainfall dynamics across different regions and timescales could help to understand and predict the sensitivity and response of monsoons to various forcing mechanisms.
Low‐latitude control on seasonal and interannual changes in planktonic foraminiferal flux and shell geochemistry off south Java: A sediment trap study
[1] Results from sediment trap experiments conducted in the seasonal upwelling area off south Java from November 2000 until July 2003 revealed significant monsoon-, El Nino–Southern Oscillation–, and
North Atlantic forcing of tropical Indian Ocean climate
It is shown that slowdowns of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation during Heinrich stadials and the Younger Dryas stadial affected the tropical Indian Ocean hydroclimate through changes to the Hadley circulation including a southward shift in the rising branch (the intertropical convergence zone) and an overall weakening over the southern Indian Ocean.
Glacial to Holocene swings of the Australian–Indonesian monsoon
The Australian‐Indonesian monsoon is an important component of the climate system in the tropical Indo‐Pacific region 1 . However, its past variability, relation with northern and southern
