Abstract Terminal lakes without outlet respond directly to climate change and human impact, and provide important evidence for environmental conditions prior to times of instrumental monitoring. Lop Nur in northwestern China is a terminal lake which was still one of the world's largest lakes in historical times. Sediments from the excavated section YKD0301 in its presently dry basin were investigated to reconstruct the Holocene salinity history of the lake. Ostracod shells of Cyprideis torosa an...

The Chinese empire experienced a large expansion to the arid regions in the west during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE–220 CE). The Hexi Corridor, the Yanqi Basin, the southeastern part of the Junggar Basin and the Tarim Basin became part of the empire. The expansion of the Han Dynasty was accompanied by the significant intensification of irrigation farming along rivers draining the Qilian, Tianshan and Kunlun Mountains. Sedimentological and geochemical analyses and dating of lake sediments and shorel...

A high-resolution study of clay mineralogy has been carried out on a sediment core recovered from Kuhai Lake in order to investigate climatic and environmental changes in the northeastern Tibetan Plateau since the late glacial period. Clay mineralogy reveals significant changes in sedimentary sources and hydrolysis conditions in the Kuhai Lake catchment area. Before 14.9 cal ka BP, the predominance of illite and relatively high amount of kaolinite, derived mainly from the reworking of sedimentar...

Remnants of cities and farmlands in China's hyperarid Tarim Basin indicate that environmental conditions were significantly wetter two millennia ago in a region which is barren desert today. Historical documents and age data of organic remains show that the Loulan Kingdom flourished during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE-220 CE) but was abandoned between its end and 645 CE. Previous archaeological, geomorphological and geological studies suggest that deteriorating climate conditions led to the abandonm...

Abstract We investigated 4.84-m-long sediment record spanning over the Late Glacial and Holocene from Lake Donggi Cona to be able to reconstruct circulation pattern on the Tibetan Plateau (TP). Presently, Lake Donggi Cona is located at the boundaries of Westerlies and Asian monsoon circulations in the northeastern TP. However, the exact timing and stimulating mechanisms for climatic changes and monsoon shifts in this region are still debated. We used a 19-ka-long stable isotope record of sedimen...
