High resolution paleo-monsoon records from peninsular Indian speleothems

Abstract:

The Indian Summer Monsoon is a major component of the global climatic system. Stalagmites have a proven ability to provide information of such monsoon systems. In this thesis, examination of cave records and field work provides a framework of the spatial and temporal distribution of stalagmites in peninsular India. Stable oxygen isotope records from stalagmites are supported by trace element records. An aragonite stalagmite from the west coast of India suggests that changes in growth surfa...
