Abstract

An increasing number of high-resolution paleoclimate records show substantial natural variation during the Holocene. In order to improve climate projections on human lifetime, the processes that potentially control teleconnections between different parts of the climate system need to be understood. A highly suitable area to study these processes is the Asian monsoon system, as it is one of the most dynamic climate systems on Earth and largely controls climate in Asia and the Indo-W-Pacific realm. Here, we present a Holocene stable O-isotope record from the summer-dwelling planktic foraminifer G. bulloides in Core 905 off Somalia. Initially dated by the radiocarbon method the record was tuned to atmospheric
