Intense hurricane activity over the past 5,000 years controlled by El Niño and the West African monsoon
J. Donnelly, J. Woodruff
Environmental Science, MedicineNature
24 May 2007
TLDR
Comparison of the sediment record with palaeo-climate records indicates that this variability was probably modulated by atmospheric dynamics associated with variations in the El Niño/Southern Oscillation and the strength of the West African monsoon, and suggests that sea surface temperatures as high as at present are not necessary to support intervals of frequent intense hurricanes.

Rapid shoreward encroachment of salt marsh cordgrass in response to accelerated sea-level rise
J. Donnelly, M. Bertness
Medicine
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…
27 November 2001
TLDR
Increased flooding associated with accelerating rates of sea-level rise has stressed high-marsh communities and promoted landward migration of cordgrass, suggesting that New England salt marsh communities dominated by cordgrass will likely drown if climate warming causes sea- level rise rates to increase significantly over the next century.

Coupling instrumental and geological records of sea‐level change: Evidence from southern New England of an increase in the rate of sea‐level rise in the late 19th century
J. Donnelly, P. Cleary, P. Newby, R. Ettinger
Geology
16 March 2004
[1] We construct a high-resolution relative sea-level record for the past 700 years by dating basal salt-marsh peat samples above a glacial erratic in an eastern Connecticut salt marsh, to test… Expand

Climate related sea-level variations over the past two millennia
A. Kemp, B. Horton, J. Donnelly, M. Mann, M. Vermeer, S. Rahmstorf
Geography, Medicine
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
20 June 2011
TLDR
New sea-level reconstructions for the past 2100 y based on salt-marsh sedimentary sequences from the US Atlantic coast are presented and it is shown that these sea- level changes are consistent with global temperature for at least the past millennium.Expand

Atlantic hurricanes and climate over the past 1,500 years
M. Mann, J. Woodruff, J. Donnelly, Zhihua Zhang
Geography, Medicine
Nature

13 August 2009
TLDR
The statistical model indicates that the medieval peak, which rivals or even exceeds (within uncertainties) recent levels of activity, results from the reinforcing effects of La-Niña-like climate conditions and relative tropical Atlantic warmth. Expand

Rapid sea-level rise and Holocene climate in the Chukchi Sea
L. Keigwin, J. Donnelly, M. Cook, N. Driscoll, J. Brigham‐Grette
Geology
1 October 2006
Three new sediment cores from the Chukchi Sea preserve a record of local paleoenvironment, sedimentation, and flooding of the Chukchi Shelf (50 m) by glacial-eustatic sea-level rise. Radiocarbon… Expand

Young Danube delta documents stable Black Sea level since the middle Holocene: Morphodynamic, paleogeographic, and archaeological implications
L. Giosan, J. Donnelly, +5 authors G. Duller
Geology
