The South China Sea (SCS) has become a global focus for paleoclimatic and paleoceanographic studies due to its location, which makes it highly sensitive to the East Asian monsoon and to Pacific Ocean changes. We present here a refined magnetostratigraphy for the last 6.5 Ma for Hole U1431D, which was recovered during IODP Expedition 349 in the central SCS. Magnetic analyses demonstrate that magnetite is the dominant magnetic carrier except for within a greigite-bearing layer at 130.5-132.0...[Show more]
