Latest Pleistocene and Holocene vegetation and climate history inferred from an alpine lacustrine record, northwestern Yunnan Province, southwestern China
Reconstructing past changes of the summer monsoon in southwestern China is key to understanding the paleoclimatic dynamics of the Indian summer monsoon (southwest monsoon), a major tropical system with impacts beyond the region. High-resolution pollen and conifer stoma data are presented from a sediment core (Tiancai Lake), located just below treeline in the Hengduan Mountains, northwestern Yunnan Province of China. These data record changes in vegetation and climate for the latest Pleistocene...[Show more]
