Collapse of ancient Liangzhu culture caused by climate change

Caving News from Science Daily -

Referred to as 'China's Venice of the Stone Age', the Liangzhu excavation site in eastern China is considered one of the most significant testimonies of early Chinese advanced civilization. More than 5000 years ago, the city already had an elaborate water management system. Until now, it has been controversial what led to the sudden collapse. Massive flooding triggered by anomalously intense monsoon rains caused the collapse, as geologists and climate researchers have now shown.

Carbon Dioxide - Added meta data

Council of Southern Caving Clubs -

Carbon Dioxide CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) by Dr Tony Boycott Carbon Dioxide Odourless gas, heavier than air, may form pockets of higher concentration in low areas. Experienced “CO2” cavers claim to be able to detect raised levels by a metallic taste. HSE max recommended exposure is 5000 ppm (0.5%) for 8 hours, or 15000 ppm (1.5%) for up to 15 mins. Normal concentration is 0.03% in surface air. Normally 1% in caves, may be higher because of rotting vegetation, poor ventilation, small passages with…

Climate changed abruptly at tipping points in past

Caving News from Science Daily -

Climate scientists identify abrupt transitions in climate records that may have been caused by the climate system crossing a tipping point. They devised a statistical method to determine whether these transitions are simply noise or evidence of a more significant change. Their method is less error-prone than previous methods, since it doesn't rely on human determination. It also allows comparing different records consistently and can identify important events that may have been overlooked in older studies.
