Proxy data used to reconstruct 10,000 years of Indian monsoons

Editors’ Highlight—

This paper provides detailed reconstruction of changes in monsoonal precipitation over India over the last 10,000 years and comparison with proxy results. The authors conclude that teleconnections from the equatorial Pacific contributed to, if not accounted for, greater early- to mid-Holocene wetness over India as recorded by various paleoclimate proxies (e.g. cave, lacustrine, discharge) throughout the monsoon region. This gives new insights into the factors affecting monsoonal precipitation over India and its link to large scale climate factors. Such paleoclimatic modelling can contribute to understanding how contemporary climate change may affect monsoonal precipitation, which is vitally important given the major socio-economic impacts of any changes.
