Detecting human impacts on the flora, fauna, and summer monsoon of Pleistocene Australia

Miller, Gifford Hubbs; Magee, John; Fogel, Marilyn L; Gagan, Michael


The moisture balance across northern and central Australia is dominated by changes in the strength of the Australian Summer Monsoon. Lake-level records that record changes in monsoon strength on orbital timescales are most consistent with a Northern Hemisphere insolation control on monsoon strength, a result consistent with recent modeling studies. A weak Holocene monsoon relative to monsoon strength 65-60 ka, despite stronger forcing, suggests a changed monsoon regime after 60 ka. Shortly...[Show more]
