Abstract

The general patterns of climatic evolution in China during the Holocene are reviewed, and following the postglacial eustatic rise of sea-level and the institution of the East Asian Monsoon, the systems and principal fluctuations are found to be concordant with those operating elsewhere in the globe. Analysis of a drought-flood index for Beïjing in northeastern China since A.D. 1470 supports evidence for both periodic lunar nodal 18.6-year and solar cyclic 11-year induced drought-flood in the region
