Susanne Jahns
Palynological investigation of the marine core, GeoB1008-3, from near the mouth of the Congo river (6°35.6'S/10°19.1'E), provides information about the changes in vegetation and climate in West Equatorial Africa during the last 190 ka. The pollen diagram is divided into zones 1–6 which are considered to correspond in time with the marine isotope stages 1–6. Oscillations in temperature and moisture are indicated during the cold stage 6. During stage 5, two cooler periods (5d and...
