A record of rapid Holocene climate change preserved in hyrax middens from southwestern Africa
The discovery of sensitive paleoenvironmental proxies contained within fossilized rock hyrax middens from the margin of the central Namib Desert, Africa, is providing unprecedented insight into the

Lacustrine Facies In Response To Millennial–Century-Scale Climate Changes (Lake Hayk, Northern Ethiopia)
Abstract The different response of depositional systems to changes in accommodation causes lacustrine shorelines to develop a marked along-strike variability, which is well known in modern lakes but
West African Monsoon Variability from a High-Resolution Paleolimnological Record (Lake Bosumtwi, Ghana)
Instrumental and observational records of climate in West Africa suggest that this region may be susceptible to abrupt, decades-long drought events, with potentially catastrophic impacts for the
Climatic and Hydrologic Changes in Northern Ethiopia in the last 3,500 Years: Evidence from the Geomorphic, Stratigraphic, and Geochemical Archives of Hayk Lake
Lake Hayk (23 km2 in surface) is located in northern Ethiopia, at an altitude of around 2,000 m a.s.l. The Late Holocene sedimentary successions preserved along the lake margins provide a detailed
Solar variability and the levels of Lake Victoria, East Africa, during the last millenium
A new diatom series with 1–6 year resolution from Lake Victoria, East Africa, shows that lake level minima occurred ca. 820–760, 680–660, 640–620, 370–340, and 220–150 calendar years BP. Inferred
Late Quaternary paleoenvironmental changes in East Africa: a review of multiproxy evidence from palynology, lake sediments, and associated records
This paper presents an overview of paleoenvironmental changes in East Africa during the late Quaternary based on evidence from pollen, diatoms, microscopic charcoal, and lake level records and

A High-Resolution 11,400-Yr Diatom Record from Lake Victoria, East Africa
Abstract Fine-interval (∼30–45 yr) sampling of a core from Lake Victoria's Damba Channel shows that numerous abrupt changes in the lake's diatom assemblages have occurred in response to climatic
A 12,400 14c yr Offshore Diatom Record From East Central Lake Victoria, East Africa
The diatom record of V95-2P, a 7.6 m long sediment core collected from 67 m depth, is the first from the east central portion of Lake Victoria. A soil horizon developed at the coring site shortly

Fluctuations in Closed-Basin Lakes as An Indicator of Past Atmospheric Circulation Patterns
At the present day, maxima in the areal extent of lakes are associated with the latitudinal mean positions of the equatorial trough and the mid-latitude westerlies. This association is applied to
Rainfall and drought in equatorial east Africa during the past 1,100 years
TLDR
A decade-scale reconstruction of rainfall and drought in equatorial east Africa over the past 1,100 years is presented, based on lake-level and salinity fluctuations of Lake Naivasha inferred from three different palaeolimnological proxies: sediment stratigraphy and the species compositions of fossil diatom and midge assemblages.
