Quantification of Holocene Asian monsoon rainfall from spatially separated cave records

Abstract:

A reconstruction of Holocene rainfall is presented for southwest China - an area prone to drought and flooding due to variability in the East Asian monsoon. The reconstruction is derived by comparing a new high-resolution stalagmite δ¹⁸O record with an existing record from the same moisture transport pathway. The new record is from Heshang Cave (30°27'N, 110°25'E; 294 m) and shows no sign of kinetic or evaporative effects so can be reliably interpreted as a record of local rainfall compositio...
