The influence of snow sublimation and meltwater evaporation on dD of water vapor in the atmospheric boundary layer of central Europe

Abstract. Post-depositional fractionation of stable water isotopes due to fractionating surface evaporation introduces uncertainty to various isotope applications such as the reconstruction of paleotemperatures, paleoaltimetry, and the investigation of groundwater formation. In this study, ...

Biome changes in Asia since the mid-Holocene – an analysis of different transient Earth system model simulations

Abstract. The large variety of atmospheric circulation sys- tems affecting the eastern Asian climate is reflected by the complex Asian vegetation distribution. Particularly in the transition zones of these circulation systems, vegetation is supposed to be very sensitive to climate change. Since proxy records are scarce, hitherto a mechanistic understanding of the past spatio-temporal climate–vegetation relationship is lacking. .....
