Description
The authors used rubidium/strontium ratio, calcium carbonate and organic concentration data of sediments cored from Daihai Lake in Inner Mongolia (11238'E, 4033'N) to reconstruct the climate of that region over the past 2,200 years. The results indicated the existence of a "warm and humid" climate that defined the Medieval Warm Period between AD 800 and 1100, which also exhibited the "strongest chemical weathering during the last 2,200 years."
