The role of the Australian Monsoon in the western catchment of Lake Eyre, central Australia, during the Last Interglacial

Magee, John; Croke, J

Description

Relative changes in monsoon intensity can be deduced from palaeoenvironmental data such as lake level records, shore line features and aeolian/loess deflationary sequences. These data can provide assessment of past changes in the nature and timing of monsoon activity. The Lake Eyre basin (1,300,000 km2), in central Australia, is a key site for determining the nature and extent of monsoon fluctuations through glacial/interglacial cycles. A last interglacial high lake-level phase some time...[Show more]
