A high-resolution late Holocene lake isotope record from Turkey and links to North Atlantic and monsoon climate (2006)
Journal Article
Jones, M. D., Roberts, C. N., Leng, M. J., & Türkeş, M. (2006). A high-resolution late Holocene lake isotope record from Turkey and links to North Atlantic and monsoon climate. Geology, 34(5), 361-364. doi:10.1130/G22407.1

A high resolution proxy record of precipitation and evaporation variability through the past 1700 yr from δ18O analysis of a varved lake sequence from central Turkey shows rapid shifts between dry periods (AD 300–500 and AD 1400–1950) and wetter inte...

Potential limitations of biogenic silica as an indicator of abrupt climate change in Lake Baikal, Russia (2006)
Journal Article
Swann, G. E., & Mackay, A. W. (2006). Potential limitations of biogenic silica as an indicator of abrupt climate change in Lake Baikal, Russia. Journal of Paleolimnology, 36(1), doi:10.1007/s10933-006-0005-7

Biogenic Silica (BSi) has been one of the most important proxies for determining the palaeoclimate from Lake Baikal over glacial-interglacial cycles. Concentrations (calculated through a 1% Na2CO3 wet-alkaline digestion) at a site in the north basin,...

Diatom D18O evidence for the development of the modern halocline system in the subarctic northwest Pacific at the onset of major Northern Hemisphere glaciation (2006)
Journal Article
Swann, G. E., Maslin, M. A., Leng, M. J., Sloane, H. J., & Haug, G. H. (2006). Diatom D18O evidence for the development of the modern halocline system in the subarctic northwest Pacific at the onset of major Northern Hemisphere glaciation. Paleoceanography, 21(PA1009), doi:10.1029/2005PA001147

Establishing a time frame for the development of the modern halocline and stratified water column in the subarctic North Pacific has significant paleoclimatic implications. Here we present a d18O(diatom) record consisting of only two species that rep...
