Description
In an analysis of past sea level history in the South China Sea, Zicheng et al. (2003) cite the work of Honghan and Baolin (1996, in Chinese), wherein they say these authors found that "the climate temperature at 1000 a B.P. is 1-2C higher than that at present time," referring to the Futian section on the eastern bank of the Pearl River, Shenzhen Bay, China (~22.5N, 113.5E).
