browse graphicPaleoclimatology - Lake
This archived Paleoclimatology Study is available from the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), under the World Data Service (WDS) for Paleoclimatology. The associated NCEI study type is Lake. The data include parameters of paleolimnology with a geographic location of China, Eastern Asia. The time period coverage is from 11540 to 70 in calendar years before present (BP). See metadata information for parameter and study location details. Please cite this study when using the data.

Supplemental Information
STUDY NOTES: Greyscale, Ash Content, and Humification data from a peat core collected at Hongyuan, northeastern Tibetan Plateau, providing Holocene paleomonsoon proxies. Hongyuan peat core: 32°46.7'N, 102°31'E, 3527 m asl, 6.5 m core length.
ABSTRACT SUPPLIED BY ORIGINATOR: The variations of summer and winter monsoons during the Holocene in the eastern Tibetan Plateau are shown to follow two basic models based on the reliable dating and high-resolution monsoon proxies determinations, one being a synchronous model in that both summer and winter monsoons are strengthening or decreasing, and the other to form a complementary pattern. These two different patterns evenly interact with each other on different time scales and together compose a complicated monsoon climatic model in this region. The climatic condition integrated by winter and summer monsoons is synchronous to the global pattern, which also shows the instability of the Holocene climate on centennial- millennial timescale. The abrupt monsoon event in about 6.2 ka cal. BP is much more severe than that in ca. 8.0 ka cal. BP, which indicates the regional character of the Asian monsoon and that the Asian monsoon climate is indeed a window on the global climate system.
Purpose Records of past climate and environment derived from lake sediment records. Parameter keywords describe what was measured in this dataset. Additional summary information can be found in the abstracts of papers listed in the dataset citations.
