Coastal lagoon deposits provide evidence for the magnitude and frequency of past tropical cyclones prior to instrumental records and historical documentation. In the present study, we attempt to analyze the sedimentary records containing typhoon information for the northern South China Sea region. For this purpose, sediment cores were collected from two coastal lagoons in the southeastern Hainan Island, and were analyzed in laboratory to derive the data sets about grain size, organic and… 

Tracking historical storm records from high-barrier lagoon deposits on the southeastern coast of Hainan Island, China

The relationship between storm activity and global warming remains uncertain. To better understand storm—climate relationships, coastal lagoon deposits are increasingly being investigated because

Threshold sediment flux for the formation of river deltas in Hainan Island, southern China

The knowledge of geomorphological evolution from an estuary to a river delta is necessary to form the formulation of comprehensive land-ocean interaction management strategies. In this study, the

Early-Holocene Paleo-Tropical Cyclone Activity Inferred from a Sedimentary Sequence in South Yellow Sea, East Asia

Although tropical cyclones play a critical role in global climate changes, their long-term variations in the past are not well documented. In this article, a sediment core from the South Yellow Sea

Exploring records of typhoon variability in eastern China over the past 2000 years

How climate controls tropical cyclone variability has critical implications for modern human society but is not well understood due to the short length of observational records. To probe this

A Geochemical Record of Late‐Holocene Hurricane Events From the Florida Everglades

A 5.25‐m sediment core SRM‐1 and 45 surface samples from mangrove forests at the Shark River Estuary in the Everglades National Park, Florida, were examined by using X‐ray fluorescence and carbon

Volume and Nutrient Transports Disturbed by the Typhoon Chebi (2013) in the Upwelling Zone East of Hainan Island, China

Using cruise observations before and after the typhoon Chebi in August 2013 and those without the typhoon in July 2012, this study investigates variations in current structure, nutrient distribution,

On the sediment age estimated by 210Pb dating: probably misleading “prolonging” and multiple-factor-caused “loss”

The radionuclide 210Pb is suitable for century-scale dating and has been used to calculate the sedimentation rate in a variety of environments. However, two common ways to apply 210Pb dating



Reconstruction of paleostorm events in a coastal lagoon (Hérault, South of France)

Coastal plain evolution in southern Hainan Island, China

The coast of southern Hainan Island is characterized by wide sandy embayments, which consist of (i) drowned valleys bounded by steep bedrock hills and only locally receiving sediments, and embayments

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

Intense hurricane activity over the past 5,000 years controlled by El Niño and the West African monsoon

Comparison of the sediment record with palaeo-climate records indicates that this variability was probably modulated by atmospheric dynamics associated with variations in the El Niño/Southern Oscillation and the strength of the West African monsoon, and suggests that sea surface temperatures as high as at present are not necessary to support intervals of frequent intense hurricanes.

Change in the sedimentary environment of Wanquan River Estuary, Hainan Island, China

Abstract210Pb geochronology and sediment core profiles of organic carbon, total sulfur and organic carbon isotope (δ13C) values were used to reconstruct the local environmental history of the Shamei

A 300-Year Typhoon Record in Taiwan and the Relationship with Solar Activity

Previous studies have identified possible linkages between solar activity and tropical cyclone activity in the United States and Caribbean. This study used historical typhoon records dating back to

Perspectives on the linkage between typhoon activity and global warming from recent research advances in paleotempestology

The recent increase in typhoon (tropical cyclone) activity has attracted great interest and induced heated debates over whether it is linked to global warming or only a return to an active phase of
