Description
The authors conducted palynological analyses of two sediment cores taken from the Song Hong (Red River) Delta, Vietnam (~20.26N, 106.52E) in an effort to reconstruct climate variations there throughout the Holocene. As indicated by an abundance of taxa well adapted to tropical and subtropical environments, they concluded that the Medieval Warm Period (~AD 500-1330) was warmer than the present climate.
