The history of coastal catastrophic floods was reconstructed for the first time using the geochemical proxy in shelf sediments. The reconstruction is based on the identification of sediment layers accumulated on the shelf during the intensive discharge of the river runoff suspended matter from the land which does not contain bromine. The set of isotopic (AMS 14C, 210Pb, 137Cs), tephrastratigraphic, and paleomagnetic methods was used for the detailed chronology of sediments. The scanning of…

Reconstruction of paleotayphoons and recurrence of extreme floods in south Sakhalin Island in Middle–Late Holocene

The geological record of extreme floods associated with the passage of the strongest typhoons in the last 6620 cal. yr. was first restored for the Sakhalin Island. The cross-section of the Holocene

The Effect of Typhoon Goni on the Production Characteristics of Coastal Water in Posyet Bay, the Sea of Japan

Abstract The effect caused by the typhoon Goni in the coastal water of Posyet Bay, the Sea of Japan, is considered. In nearshore expeditions, profilograph SBE-19plus was used to measure the

A worldwide meta-analysis (1977–2020) of sediment core dating using fallout radionuclides including 137Cs and 210Pbxs

Abstract. Dating recent sediment archives (< 150 years) constitutes a prerequisite for environmental and climatic reconstructions. Radiocaesium (137Cs) emitted during thermonuclear bomb testing

Poleward Shift in Tropical Cyclone Tracks in the Northwest Pacific During Warm Periods: Past and Future

We used the top age of storm‐relocated coral blocks (SRCBs) from Xisha Islands and Huangyan Island, South China Sea (SCS), in combination with existing paleotempestology records and instrumental



Anomalies of bromine in the estuarine sediments as a signal of floods associated with typhoons

X-ray fluorescence scanning with synchrotron radiation was performed to study sediment core records of floods in Amur Bay, Sea of Japan. Interlayers of 3–8 mm with abnormally low bromine content were

The first discovery of cryptotephra of the catastrophic eruptions of the Baitoushan volcano in the tenth century A.D. in the shelf deposits of the Sea of Japan

The interlayers of the cryptotephra of different episodes of the catastrophic eruption of the Baitoushan volcano (Paektu-san, Changbaishan-Tianchi) in the 10th century were discovered in the

Factors controlling typhoons and storm rain on the Korean Peninsula during the Little Ice Age

Documenting multi-decadal typhoon and storm-rain variability is useful to prevent future typhoon and flood disasters. We present the history of typhoon and storm-rain activity in East Asia inferred

The carbonate system of Amur Bay (sea of Japan) under conditions of hypoxia

In the course of the expedition of the Pacific Oceanological Institute in August 2007, extensive hypoxia was found in the near-bottom layer of the Amur Bay water mass. The hypoxia’s formation was

A 1,000-Year History of Typhoon Landfalls in Guangdong, Southern China, Reconstructed from Chinese Historical Documentary Records

In China, the abundance of historical documentary records in the form of Fang Zhi (semiofficial local gazettes) offers an extraordinary opportunity for providing a high-resolution historical dataset

Sun, ocean, climate and atmospheric 14CO2 : an evaluation of causal and spectral relationships

Solar (heliomagnetic), geomagnetic and oceanic forcing all play a role in atmospheric 14CO2 change. Here we assign the variance associated with certain periodicities in a single year (0-450 cal. BP)
