A chironomid-based record of temperature variability during the past 4000 years in northern China and its possible societal implications
Abstract. Long-term, high-resolution temperature records which combine an unambiguous proxy and precise dating are rare in China. In addition, the societal implications of past temperature change on
A Chironomid Record of Early-Middle Holocene Environmental Evolution in the Darhad Basin, Northern Mongolia
Simple Summary The Holocene humidity evolution presents spatial heterogeneity in the Mongolian Plateau where multiple circulation systems converged. Inconsistent records of regional environmental
Chironomid fauna of the lakes from the Pechora river basin (east of European part of Russian Arctic): Ecology and reconstruction of recent ecological changes in the region
We investigated chironomid fauna of surface sediments and a short sediment core (Bol’shoy Kharbey Lake) from Pechora river basin, Northern Russia. Twenty three investigated lakes have thermokarst,
Holocene evolution of a proglacial lake in southern Kamchatka, Russian Far East
The Kamchatka Peninsula (Russian Far East) remains among the least studied regions of eastern Asia. Recent studies revealed a high degree of palaeoenvironmental variability between different parts of
Chironomid-based temperature reconstruction for the Eemian Interglacial (MIS 5e) at Sokli, northeast Finland
AbstractThe Last Interglacial (Eemian, MIS 5e) can be considered a test-bed for climate dynamics under a warmer-than-present climate. In this study we present a chironomid record from the high
The influence of Holocene forest dynamics on the chironomid fauna of a boreal lake (Flocktjärn, northeast Sweden)

There is a notable lack of palaeoecological records, particularly quantitative palaeoenvironmental reconstructions, for northeast Sweden. Here I use a lake sediment record from lake Flocktjärn to
A 2000-year record of lake ontogeny and climate variability from the north-eastern European Russian Arctic
A lake sediment record from the north-eastern European Russian Arctic was examined using palaeolimnological methods, including subfossil chironomid and diatom analysis. The objective of this study is
Proxy-based 300-year High Arctic climate warming record from Svalbard
Abstract We used fossil Chironomidae assemblages and the transfer function approach to reconstruct summer air temperatures over the past 300 years from a High Arctic lake in Hornsund, Svalbard. Our


Chironomid-based inference models for estimating mean July air temperature and water depth from lakes in Yakutia, northeastern Russia
We investigated the subfossil chironomid fauna of 150 lakes situated in Yakutia, northeastern Russia. The objective of this study was to assess the relationship between chironomid assemblage
A northwest North American training set: distribution of freshwater midges in relation to air temperature and lake depth
Freshwater midges, consisting of Chironomidae, Chaoboridae and Ceratopogonidae, were assessed as a biological proxy for palaeoclimate in eastern Beringia. The northwest North American training set
An expanded calibration model for inferring lakewater and air temperatures from fossil chironomid assemblages in northern Fennoscandia
Chironomid-temperature inference models based on an expanded data set of surface-sediment and limnological data from 53 Subarctic lakes in northern Fennoscandia have been developed using eight
Chironomids as indicators of climate change: a 100‐lake training set from a subarctic region of northern Sweden (Lapland)
Multivariate numerical analyses (DCA, CCA) were used to study the distribution of chironomids from surface sediments of 100 lakes spanning broad eco‐climatic conditions in northern Swedish Lapland.
Subfossil Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) along a latitudinal gradient in Finland: development of a new temperature inference model
Numerical analysis showed that the mean July air temperature was the most significant variable explaining the distribution and abundance of chironomids in Finnish lakes, and the transfer function is a valid means of performing quantitative palaeotemperature estimates in downcore studies.
Chironomid-inferred late-glacial and early-Holocene mean July air temperatures for Kråkenes Lake, western Norway
A chironomid data-set calibrated to July air temperatures, based on 44 lakes in western Norway, is used to reconstruct mean July air temperatures from late-glacial and early-Holocene fossil
