Variations in the amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth are thought to influence climate, but the extent of this influence on timescales of millennia to decades is unclear. A number of climate records show correlations between solar cycles and climate, but the absolute changes in solar intensity over the range of decades to millennia are small and the influence of solar flux on climate is not well established. The formation of stalagmites in northern Oman has recorded past northward… 
Holocene Records of Rainfall Variation and Associated ITCZ Migration from Stalagmites from Northern and Southern Oman
Oxygen isotope (δ18O) profiles of uranium-series-dated stalagmites from Oman provide a record of Holocene Indian Ocean monsoon intensity at sub-decadal resolution over the past 10,000 years. The δ18O
A solar (irradiance) trigger for millennial-scale abrupt changes in the southwest monsoon?
[1] Marine sedimentary records of the last glacial from tropical monsoon latitudes indicate climate fluctuations comparable to rapid changes in δ18O recorded in Greenland. Synchronizing two
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
Solar forcing of the Indian summer monsoon variability during the Ållerød period
Spectral analysis of the Globigerina bulloides time series reveals a strong solar 208-year cycle also known as de Vries or Suess cycle, suggesting that the centennial scale variability in Indian summer monsoon winds during the Ållerød inerstadial was driven by changes in the solar irradiance through stratospheric-tropospheric interactions.
Decadal resolution record of Oman upwelling indicates solar forcing of the Indian summer monsoon (9-6 ka)
Abstract. The Indian summer monsoon (ISM) is an important conveyor in the ocean–atmosphere coupled system on a trans-regional scale. Here we present a study of a sediment core from the northern Oman
Solar-forcing-induced spatial synchronisation of the East Asian summer monsoon on centennial timescales


Century-scale events in monsoonal climate over the past 24,000 years
BOTH the marine sediment record and numerical modelling of the atmospheric summer circulation over the northern Indian Ocean and southeast Asia have shown that the monsoonal climate exhibits a direct
The southwest Indian Monsoon over the last 18 000 years
Previously published results suggest that the strength of the SW Indian Monsoon can vary significantly on century- to millenium time scales, an observation that has important implications for
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)
Relation between century-scale Holocene arid intervals in tropical and temperate zones
CLIMATE records from lake sediments in tropical Africa, Central America and west Asia show several century-scale arid intervals during the Holocene1–10. These may have been caused by temporary
A pollen record of Holocene climatic changes from the Dunde ice cap, Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
Pollen preserved in ice cores from the Dunde ice cap provides a sensitive record of Holocene climatic changes and vegetational response in the northern Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau at time scales ranging
Rapid changes in ocean circulation and atmospheric radiocarbon
A latitude-depth, coupled global ocean-ice-atmosphere model is extended to include a simple biosphere component. A physically reasonable adjustment of runoff into the North Atlantic is invoked to

A general circulation model that simulated changes in solar irradiance and stratospheric ozone was used to investigate the response of the atmosphere to the 11-year solar activity cycle. At solar
