Project details

Indian summer monsoon variability during the past ten thousand years

Significant spatial and temporal heterogeneity exist between the records of past monsoon variability calling for independent, well-dated paleoclimate reconstructions. This project aims to reconstruct high resolution monsoon changes across the last 10,000 years using lake archives from North India.
