Molecular records of climate variability and vegetation response since the Late Pleistocene in the Lake Victoria basin, East Africa
M. Berke, T. Johnson, J. Werne, K. Grice, Stefan Schouten, J. Damsté
Environmental Science
8 November 2012
New molecular proxies of temperature and hydrology are helping to constrain tropical climate change and elucidate possible forcing mechanisms during the Holocene. Here, we examine a similar to 14,000… Expand

A mid-Holocene thermal maximum at the end of the African Humid Period
M. Berke, T. Johnson, J. Werne, S. Schouten, J. Damsté
Geology
15 October 2012
The termination of the African Humid Period (AHP) about 5 thousand years ago (ka) was the most dramatic climate shift in northern and equatorial Africa since the end of the Pleistocene. Based on… Expand

Rapid sea level rise and ice sheet response to 8,200-year climate event
T. Cronin, P. Vogt, +4 authors J. Pohlman
Geology
1 October 2007
[1] The largest abrupt climatic reversal of the Holocene interglacial, the cooling event 8.6-8.2 thousand years ago (ka), was probably caused by catastrophic release of glacial Lake Agassiz-Ojibway,… Expand

Atmospheric circulation patterns during late Pleistocene climate changes at Lake Malawi, Africa
B. Konecky, J. Russell, +4 authors Y. Huang
Geology
15 December 2011
Abstract The climate of tropical Africa transitioned from an interval of pronounced, orbitally-paced megadroughts to more humid and stable conditions approximately 70,000 years ago (Scholz et al.,… Expand

Leaf-wax n-alkanes record the plant–water environment at leaf flush
B. Tipple, M. Berke, C. Doman, S. Khachaturyan, J. Ehleringer
Geography, Medicine
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
28 January 2013
TLDR
This model provides a mechanistic basis of the often-observed 2H-enrichment from the expected fractionation values in studies of broadleaf angiosperm leaf-wax δ2H, and allows the isolation of the precipitation dynamics of individual periods of the growing season. Expand

A progressively wetter climate in southern East Africa over the past 1.3 million years
T. Johnson, J. Werne, +11 authors J. Damsté
Geology, Geography
Nature

16 December 2015
TLDR
The temperature history of the Malawi basin, at least for the past 500,000 years, strongly resembles past changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide and terrigenous dust flux in the tropical Pacific Ocean, but not in global ice volume. Expand

Characterization of the last deglacial transition in tropical East Africa: Insights from Lake Albert
M. Berke, T. Johnson, +4 authors J. Damsté
Geology
1 September 2014
Abstract New biomarker analyses from Lake Albert, East Africa spanning ~ 15–9 ka show the most extreme, abrupt, multi-stage climate and environmental shifts during the last deglacial transition of… Expand

Extended megadroughts in the southwestern United States during Pleistocene interglacials

Geology, Medicine
Nature

24 February 2011
TLDR
Using molecular palaeotemperature proxies to reconstruct the mean annual temperature in mid-Pleistocene lacustrine sediment from the Valles Caldera, New Mexico, it is found that the driest conditions occurred during the warmest phases of interglacials, when the MAT was comparable to or higher than the modern MAT.
