Cyclic storms in central China

Using soil-derived magnetic minerals preserved in a stalagmite from central China, a study finds that the occurrence of intense storms over the past 9,000 years may have been associated with amplified El Niño–Southern Oscillation activity at millennial and centennial time scales and with reduced solar activity on a 500-year cycle, findings with potential implications for forecasting flooding events. - Read at PNAS.org
