Reconstructing Asian Monsoon History from Chinese Speleothems; Kathleen R. Johnson, Department of Earth System Science, University of California, Irvine: While we know that modern anthropogenic climate change is superimposed upon significant natural climate variability, the instrumental record of climate is too short to capture the full range of this variability. In order to fully understand and predict future changes, therefore, high-resolution, welldated paleoclimate records are needed to...
