Abstract

A piston core from the Somali upwelling area has been studied at high resolution for its dinoflagellate cyst content. Variations in cyst association are inferred to reflect changes in Indian Ocean summer monsoon intensity. Several abrupt fluctuations in monsoon intensity are detected for the interval between 20 and 10 ka BP. Comparison of these fluctuations with changes in contrast between 30°N and 30°S July insolation and the δ
