Lucy, the most famous fossil of a human ancestor, probably died after falling from a tree, according to a study appearing in Nature led by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin. Lucy, a 3.18-million-year-old specimen of Australopithecus afarensis —...

The influence of the Indian monsoon on productivity and sedimentation in the northern Bay of Bengal over the last glacial-interglacial cycle

The Indian monsoon drives seasonal changes in precipitation and runoff across India as well as circulation and productivity in the northern Indian Ocean. I will present a multi-proxy analysis of a sediment record (since 110 ka) from the offshore Mahanadi Basin recovered during the Indian National Gas Hydrate Program Expedition 01 (Site NGHP-01-19B) within the core convective region of the Indian monsoon. These results highlight the offshore Mahanadi Basin as a supply-dominated margin where terrigenous sedimentation is strongly influenced by monsoon intensity, and that biological productivity is likely limited by variation in monsoon-driven ocean stratification on glacial-interglacial timescales rather than a direct response to monsoon winds. Evidence of reduced chemical weathering and an increase in C4 plant material suggest more arid conditions between 70 and 10 ka. The mass-accumulation rate of CaCO3, a function of marine productivity, drastically increased between 70 and 10 ka and is correlated to a previously-documented increase in Bay of Bengal surface salinity. This evidence for a weakened summer monsoon and reduced stratification between 70 and 10 ka is correlated to elevated eastern Asian dust content in Greenland ice cores.
