Abstract

Questions have been raised as to whether the isotopic composition of meteoric water can be used to reconstruct paleomonsoon intensity. Tree rings of two modern spruce trees were analyzed for hydrogen isotopic composition. On average, the older tree is depleted in deuterium compared to the modern trees. The AA. attribute this isotopic depletion to the strength of summer monsoons, which were more intense in the early Holocene than at present. Although this study is not definitive, it suggests that paleomonsoon intensity canbe reconstructed by direct or proxy methods that yield the oxygen or hydrogen isotopic composition of meteoric water
