Climatic changes during the past 1300 years as deduced from the sediments of Lake Nakatsuna, central Japan

  author={Danda Pani Adhikari and Fujio Kumon},
Abstract Limnological features and sediment characteristics were studied in Lake Nakatsuna, a mesotrophic lake in central Japan. The lake is dimictic, and is anoxic in the hypolimnion during thermal stratification from May to September. In an attempt to reconstruct paleoclimatic changes around the lake, a sediment core taken from the lake center spanning the past 1300 years was analyzed for its organic and inorganic contents. Climatic influences were examined on the variation of total organic… 
Holocene climate variability as deduced from the organic carbon and diatom records in the sediments of Lake Aoki, central Japan
In order to understand the climate variability of the Holocene period, two sediment cores were extracted at the northeastern part of Lake Aoki, an intermontane freshwater body located near the
Late Holocene Indian Summer Monsoon Variations Recorded at Lake Erhai, Southwestern China
In this study we report changes in Indian summer monsoon (ISM) intensity during the past ~ 3500 yr inferred from proxy indices at Lake Erhai, southwestern China. Both the pollen concentrations and
Human-induced hydrological changes in Lake Aoki and their influences in limnic environment
The hydrological regime of Lake Aoki, central Japan has been altered when electric power plants started draining water to and from the lake since AD 1954. The use of lake water drops its level during
Late Holocene paleoenvironmental changes in subtropical Taiwan inferred from pollen and diatoms in lake sediments
We analyzed pollen, spores, diatoms, organic carbon, nitrogen, and δ13C of organic matter in lake sediments to infer climate changes and reconstruct the paleo-environment of subtropical Taiwan over
Climate changes for the past 52 ka clarified by total organic carbon concentrations and pollen composition in Lake Biwa, Japan
Total organic carbon (TOC) and total nitrogen (TN) analyses have been performed for three core samples obtained recently from Lake Biwa, which include BIW07-5, BIW07-6, and BIW08-B cores. The TOC and
Late Holocene monsoonal-climate change inferred from Lakes Ni-no-Megata and San-no-Megata, northeastern Japan
Micro-sedimentological, geochemical data from Lakes Ni-no-Megata and San-no-Megata in northeastern Japan are used to reconstruct environmental and climate changes over the last 2000 years. Comparing
Late Holocene Indian summer monsoon precipitation history at Lake Lugu, northwestern Yunnan Province, southwestern China
Abstract Knowledge of late Holocene precipitation variability in the northwestern Yunnan Province is important for understanding the Indian summer monsoon (ISM) dynamics. In this study, we present a
Late Holocene climate and environmental changes in Kamchatka inferred from the subfossil chironomid record
This study presents a reconstruction of the Late Holocene climate in Kamchatka based on chironomid remains from a 332 cm long composite sediment core recovered from Dvuyurtochnoe Lake (Two-Yurts
Preservation potential of seasonal laminated deposits as a useful tool for environmental analysis in mesotrophic Lake Kizaki, central Japan
Abstract In this paper discusses the aquatic environment at Lake Kizaki, central Japan, during the last ca. 60 years and describes the importance of laminated sediments in environmental analyses. The
Investigation of peat sediments from Daiyun Mountain in southeast China: late Holocene vegetation, climate and human impact
In this study, late Holocene vegetation, climate and human impacts were investigated using multiproxy data-pollen percentages, pollen accumulation rates (PAR), humification and loss-on-ignition


Late Holocene Lake Sedimentology and Climate Change in Southern Alberta, Canada
Abstract Climatic changes in southern Alberta, Canada, for the past 4000 yr are reflected in a high-resolution record of lake sediment grain size. The proposed mechanism for this response is that
Palaeolimnological approaches to climate change, with special regard to the biological record
Abstract Lakes systems respond physically, chemically and biologically to changes in climate and these responses are registered in many various ways in lake sediment records. This paper focuses
Extreme and persistent drought in California and Patagonia during mediaeval time
STUDIES from sites around the world1–5 have provided evidence for anomalous climate conditions persisting for several hundred years before about AD 1300. Early workers emphasized the temperature
Origin and consequences of cyclic ice rafting in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean during the past 130,000 years
Deep-sea sediment cores recovered from the Northeast Atlantic Ocean were examined in order to elucidate the influence of the Earth's orbital parameters on major ice rafting. Analyses of
The Accumulation Record from the GISP2 Core as an Indicator of Climate Change Throughout the Holocene
A depth-age scale and an accumulation history for the Holocene have been established on the Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 (GISP2) deep core, providing the most continuously dated record of annual
Climatic implications of δ13C variations in a Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) during the last two millenia
Tree-ring δ 13 C of both modern Japanese cedars, and of a giant Japanese cedar growing throughout the last two millennia on Yakushima Island, southern Japan, were studied. δ 13 C of eleven modern
Little Ice Age
The term Little Ice Age was originally coined by F Matthesin 1939 to describe the most recent 4000 year climaticinterval (the Late Holocene) associated with a particularlydramatic series of mountain
Was there a ‘medieval warm period’, and if so, where and when?
It has frequently been suggested that the period encompassing the ninth to the fourteenth centuries A.D. experienced a climate warmer than that prevailing around the turn of the twentieth century.
