Journal Article
Wagner, B., Vogel, H., Francke, A., Friedrich, T., Donders, T., Lacey, J. H., …Zhang, X. (in press). Mediterranean winter rainfall in phase with African monsoons during the past 1.36 million years. Nature, 573, 256-260. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41586-019-1529-0

Mediterranean climates are characterized by strong seasonal contrasts between dry summers and wet winters. Changes in winter rainfall are critical for regional socioeconomic development, but are difficult to simulate accurately and reconstruct on Qua...

Journal Article
Lacey, J. H., Leng, M. J., Höbig, N., Reed, J. M., Valero-Garcés, B., & Reicherter, K. (2016). Western Mediterranean climate and environment since Marine Isotope Stage 3: a 50,000-year record from Lake Banyoles, Spain. Journal of paleolimnology, 55(2), 113-128. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10933-015-9868-9

We present new stable isotope (δ¹⁸Ocalcite and δ¹³ Ccalcite) and diatom data from a 67-m sediment core (BAN II) from Lake Banyoles, northeastern Spain. We reassessed the chronology of the sequence by correlating stable isotope data with a shorter U-s...
