(1) Depth (cm)
(2) Age (yr BP)
Paq= (C23+C25)/ (C23+C25+C29+C31)
ACL= (21*C21+23*C23+25*C25+27*C27+29*C29+31*C31+33*C33)/ (C21+C23+C25+C27+C29+C31+C33)
Generally, our data revealed the Holocene moisture and temperature variations in arid central Asia. Paq means the percentage content of aquatic plants in peat sediment and is an indicator of moisture, ACL means average carbon chain length and is an indicator of temperature.
