The Holocene history of Lop Nur and its palaeoclimate implications dataset(during the last 9 ka)
CTR :376
Key words Lop Nur,palaeoclimate,Holocene
Relevant data Based on our conducted multi-proxy study, six stages of hydrological evolution are identified for the Lop Nur region during the past 9 ka. (1) During the first stage at c. 9.0 ka, Lop Nur was relatively shallow, permanent and brackish water lake which experienced frequent flood events during a relatively wet climate. (2) The second stage (c. 8.9-8.7 ka) was a drier period and Lop Nur became a saline lake. (3) Wetter climate conditions and highest effective moisture during the period between c. 8.7 and 5.1 ka led to a significant dilution of lake waters which were slightly brackish during this period of Holocene Optimum. (4) From c. 5.1 to 2.4 ka, the lake experienced significantly drier conditions and lake waters were saline again. (5) Another period of wetter conditions prevailed between c. 2.4 and 1.8 ka and caused a dilution of waters which became brackish again. We speculate that the wet conditions during this period supported the ancient Loulan Kingdom until aridification gave rise to the final stage of lake history. (6) During this last stage starting c. 1.8 ka, the lake shrank gradually culminating in its final desiccation in the 1930s and the formation of a massive salt crust on the former lake bed. From 9 ka to present, the general moisture history in the Lop Nur catchment is relatively consistent with those reconstructed for the westerlies region, arid central Asia, or western Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang, implying that similar climate conditions prevailed in a large region of central Asia in the Holocene.
