The Younger Dryas chronozone, recognised in northern high-latitude areas as a cold event between 11 000 and 10 000 14C yr BP (12 900-11 600 cal. yr BP), seems to manifest itself globally in different ways. Here, we examine well-dated stratigraphic sequences together with high-resolution proxy data plots from sites across our study area, the arid-semi-arid transition zone in northern China. This climatically sensitive area of China records a cold, dry Younger Dryas climate which was punctuated...[Show more]
