Indonesian Lakes and ENSO History
The El Niño Southern Oscillation system orchestrates climate changes at a global scale. We can predict the occurrence of ENSO events months in advance, and are beginning to understand the mechanisms that control ENSO variability at orbital time-scales. Yet little is known about ENSO's behavior at critical timescales of decades to millennia. Developing projects at Brown University seek to understand ENSO variability using laminated lake sediments from deep maar lakes in eastern Java, Indonesia using inorganic geochemical tools.
