The East Asian winter monsoon (EAWM) significantly impacts living conditions in a large part of Asia, and therefore, it is important to understand its major driving mechanisms. Winter sea surface temperature (SSTW) and circulation in the southern Okinawa Trough are today both primarily controlled by the EAWM. Here we present a new SSTW reconstruction for the last millennium based on a diatom record from sediment core MD05‐2908, from the continental slope of the southern Okinawa Trough off… 

Decadal‐ to Centennial‐Scale East Asian Summer Monsoon Variability Over the Past Millennium: An Oceanic Perspective

The East Asian summer monsoon (EASM) is a key component of the Asian Monsoon system affecting regional precipitation in East Asia and thus human culture, society, and development. Despite this,

A multi‐model analysis of the East Asian monsoon changes in the Medieval Climate Anomaly and Little Ice Age

Using nine climate model simulations from the Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project Phase 3, the changes in the East Asian summer and winter monsoon, together with their associated

Early to Mid-Holocene Palaeoenvironment Change and Sedimentary Evolution in the Xianghu Area, Zhejiang

The results of the total organic carbon (TOC) and stable organic carbon isotope (δ13C) in sediment samples from core XH-2 in the Xianghu area in Zhejiang Province have revealed the evolution of sedimentary environmental and climatic changes during the breeding–prosperity–decline period of the Kuahuqiao culture.



Last deglaciation in the Okinawa Trough: Subtropical northwest Pacific link to Northern Hemisphere and tropical climate

[1] Detailed deglacial and Holocene records of planktonic delta O-18 and Mg/Ca - based sea surface temperature (SST) from the Okinawa Trough suggest that at similar to 18 to 17 thousand years before

Changes in East Asian summer monsoon precipitation during the Holocene deduced from a freshwater flux reconstruction of the Changjiang (Yangtze River) based on the oxygen isotope mass balance in the northern East China Sea

Abstract. The δ18O of seawater (δ18Ow), an indirect indicator of sea surface salinity (SSS), in the northern East China Sea (ECS) is reconstructed for the Holocene using paired analyses of Mg / Ca

Autumn Eurasian snow depth, autumn Arctic sea ice cover and East Asian winter monsoon

We present observational evidence and model simulation demonstrating a significant change in the early 1990s in the relationships of the autumn Eurasian snow depth (AESD) and the autumn Arctic sea

Sea surface temperature variability in southern Okinawa Trough during last 2700 years

Most of the temperature reconstructions for the past two millennia are based on proxy data from various sites on land. Here we present a bidecadal resolution record of sea surface temperature (SST)

North Atlantic sea surface temperatures and their relation to the North Atlantic Oscillation during the last 230 years

August Sea Surface Temperatures (aSSTs) based on fossil diatom assemblages are generated with 2 year average resolution from a 230-year-long sediment core (Rapid 21-12B), from the Reykjanes Ridge in
