Figure 7. East Asian monsoon climate change in the northern SCS during the last glacial cycle from a core recovered during the SONNE 17940 cruise. The plots shown are, from top to bottom: total grain-size mode, clay content, stable oxygen isotope values from Globigerinoides ruber, and, for reference, the oxygen isotope record from the GISP2 ice core. EHPB = early Holocene/Preboreal, Y.D. = Younger Dryas, B/A = Boelling/Alleroed, H1-H4 = Heinrich Events 1-4, O.D. = Oldest Dryas, LGM = Last Glacial Maximum. Data from Wang et al. (1999).
