Collaborative Research: Western Equatorial Pacific Rainfall During the Holocene: New Inter-annual Records from High Resolution Borneo Stalagmites
DESCRIPTION: The project will better characterize the evolution of ENSO during the Holocene using speleothems from Borneo. The team will complete a continuous U/Th-dated high-resolution reconstruction of interannual to decadal hydrological variability.
OUTCOMES: Collected and analyzed hundreds of samples. The results show that there was significantly less variation from ~6kyr BP to ~3kyr BP which matches coral records from the region, but not sediment records.
