Session description:

The monsoon system, covering a vast area from Africa, India, through East Asia and North Australia, is a major component of the modern climate system. The apparent increase in the frequency of floods and droughts throughout this region has highlighted the importance of understanding the factors governing the precipitation over this vast region.
This session aims to bring together scientists working on (i) factors and teleconnections influencing the modern monsoon precipitation with special focus on spatial inhomogeneities; (ii) high resolution marine and terrestrial reconstructions of late Quaternary monsoon variability; (iii) regional impact of events e.g. Younger Dryas, 8.2 and 4.2 ka events, Little Ice Age and the Medieval Warming (MWP); (iv) identifying the role of westerlies and the monsoon precipitation on regional hydrology; (v) palaeoclimate model simulations and proxy data-model comparisons.
