Using sediments from a remote lake, researchers from Brown University, including Jim Russell, have assembled a 60,000-year record of rainfall in central Indonesia. The analysis reveals important new details about the climate history of a region that wields a substantial influence on the global climate as a whole. The data are published this week in the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences.
