Figure 8. 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 show 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 theGISO2 ice core. EHPB = Early Holocene/Pre Boreal; Y.D. = Younger Dryas; B/A = Boelling/Alleroed; O.D. = Oldest Dryas (data from Wang et al., in press).
