Relevant data Sun, Y.B., S.C. Clemens, C. Morrill, X.P. Lin, X.L. Wang, and Z.S. An. 2012. Influence of Atlantic meridional overturning circulation on the East Asian winter monsoon. Nature Geoscience, Vol. 5, pp. 46-49. DOI: 10.1038/NGEO1326
Data shows that
Grain size data for the past 60,000 years from 2 loess sections in the northwestern Chinese Loess Plateau. 20-m sampling pits were excavated at Jingyuan and Gulang, with age models developed via 40 optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) measurements. Grain size was measured on 2000 samples taken at 2-cm. intervals. Grain size data is interpreted as a winter monsoon strength proxy.
