Description
A high-resolution record of variations in the Indian summer monsoon derived from relative abundances of the planktic foraminifer Globigerina bulloides obtained from a sediment core off the coast of Oman in the northwestern Arabian Sea (1803.08'N, 5736.56'E) indicated that southwest monsoon winds were stronger during the Medieval Warm Period (AD 800-1300), coincident with a period of high solar activity.
