Termination I East Asian monsoon stalagmite transitional characteristic regional difference driving mechanism Xianyun cave Fujian
The Termination I(TI)is the most significant abrupt warming event in the northern hemisphere during the last deglaciation of about 14.7 ka B.P., and its transitional characteristics and global response to climate change are the focus of the research. Based on 17 high-resolution 230Th ages and 567 oxygen isotope data from two stalagmites(XY11 and XYⅢ-21)in Xianyun cave of western Fujian, southeastern China, the East Asian summer monsoon intensity evolution sequence with an average resolution of ten years covering the period of 12.67-16.10 ka B.P. was established. It is characterized by slow transitional process over 800 a, which is much longer than that in Yemen(~13 a), the southwestern China(~35 a)and the middle-lower reaches of Yangtze River, China(~200 a), showing obvious regional differences. The onset of intensified monsoon mainly responses to the north high latitude climate during the Termination I inferred from stalagmite records in Xianyun cave. The slow transitional characteristic implies that the hydrology processes over the tropical low latitude West Pacific warm pool may exert significant impact on the monsoon climate.
