The extent of climate variability during the current interglacial period, the Holocene, is still debated. Temperature records derived from central Greenland ice cores show one significant temperature anomaly between 8,200 and 8,100 years ago, which is often attributed to a meltwater outflow into the North Atlantic Ocean and a slowdown of North Atlantic Deep Water formation—this anomaly provides an opportunity to study such processes with relevance to present-day freshening of the North Atlantic… 
Links between the East Asian monsoon and North Atlantic climate during the 8,200 year event
A period of cooling in the North Atlantic region 8,200 years ago affected climate throughout the Northern Hemisphere. A speleothem record from central China indicates that a dry period lasting 150
South Atlantic island record reveals a South Atlantic response to the 8.2 kyr event
Abstract. One of the most distinct climate fluctuations during the Holocene is the short and rapid event centred around 8200 years ago, the 8.2 kyr event, which was most likely triggered by glacial
Abrupt Holocene climate change and potential response to solar forcing in western Canada
The influence and chronological uncertainties of the 8.2 ka cooling event on continental climate records in China
A compilation of early-Holocene terrestrial records from lacustrine sediments, ice cores, peat bog, palaeosols, stalagmites and flood sediments from China indicates that the early-Holocene climate
Terrestrial impact of abrupt changes in the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation: Early Holocene, UK
Abrupt cooling events are features of Holocene climate and may recur in the future. We use lake records from Hawes Water, NW England, to quantify the impact of two prominent early Holocene climatic
Centennial scale climate instabilities in a wet early Holocene West African monsoon
A Holocene Gulf of Guinea record of riverine runoff, based on Ba/Ca in tests of a shallow‐dwelling planktic foraminifer, and sea surface temperature (SST), based on Mg/Ca, reveals centennial‐scale
Simulation of Holocene cooling events in a coupled climate model
Holocene climate variability in the western Mediterranean region from a deepwater sediment record
[1] The detailed analysis of the International Marine Past Global Changes Study core MD99-2343 recovered from a sediment drift at 2391 m water depth north of the island of Minorca illustrates the


Southward Migration of the Intertropical Convergence Zone Through the Holocene
The Cariaco Basin record exhibits strong correlations with climate records from distant regions, including the high-latitude Northern Hemisphere, providing evidence for global teleconnections among regional climates.
High-resolution record of Northern Hemisphere climate extending into the last interglacial period
An undisturbed climate record from a North Greenland ice core, which extends back to 123,000 years before the present, within the last interglacial period, shows a slow decline in temperatures that marked the initiation of the last glacial period.
Holocene climatic instability: A prominent, widespread event 8200 yr ago
The most prominent Holocene climatic event in Greenland ice-core proxies, with approximately half the amplitude of the Younger Dryas, occurred ∼8000 to 8400 yr ago. This Holocene event affected
Rapid climate changes in the tropical Atlantic region during the last deglaciation
THE climate system is capable of changing abruptly from one stable mode to another1–3. Rapid climate oscillations—in particular the Younger Dryas cold period during the last deglaciation—have long

Simulation of the cold climate event 8200 years ago by meltwater outburst from Lake Agassiz
meltwater pulse is assumed to have a volume of 1.6 10 14 m 3 and a period of discharge of 2 years on the basis of glaciological modeling of the decay of the Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS). We present a
Were abrupt Lateglacial and early-Holocene climatic changes in northwest Europe linked to freshwater outbursts to the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans?
During the Lateglacial and early Holocene, abrupt, millennial-scale climatic variations are recorded in a wide range of high-resolution proxy records from marine and terrestrial archives in NW
Decadal‐centennial scale monsoon variations in the Arabian Sea during the Early Holocene
An essential prerequisite for the prediction of future climate change due to anthropogenic input is an understanding of the natural processes that control Earth's climate on timescales comparable to
