Q-TiP: Quaternary Tipping Points of Lake Systems in the Arid Zone of Central Asia

Q-TiP investigates the control factors of tipping points in hydrological systems of the Quaternary within the arid zone of Central Asia which are induced by climate change and other processes, for example, tectonics.

CAHOL: Central Asian HOLocene Climate

CAHOL reconstructs the Holocene climate of Central Asia from terrestrial and marine archives, in particular the interaction between the position and strength of the Westerlies and the summer monsoon precipitation, and identifies tipping points in this system.
