Data shows that
A 5-year-resolution absolute-dated oxygen isotope record from Dongge Cave,southern China, provides a continuous history of the Asian monsoon over the past 9000 years. Although the record broadly follows summer insolation, it is punctuated by eight weak monsoon events lasting ~1 to 5 centuries. One correlates with the "8200-year" event, another with the collapse of theChinese Neolithic culture, and most with North Atlantic ice-rafting events.Cross-correlation of the decadal- to centennial-scale monsoon record withthe atmospheric carbon-14 record shows that some, but not all, of themonsoon variability at these frequencies results from changes in solar output.
