The late Holocene is generally regarded as an interval of monsoon recession and decreased precipitation in North China. However, the extent to which this affected the status of lakes in North China is unclear. In the study, we analyzed multiple proxies (δ13C, magnetic susceptibility [χlf], and exogenous element concentrations) from Lake Mayinghai, an undisturbed alpine lake in North China. We also compared the results with previously published paleoenvironmental records from the Chinese Loess Plateau…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
