Abstract

The western Pacific Ocean plays an important role in regulating and modulating the global climate system on interannual to geological timescales. Excellent records have been acquired by coring high sedimentation rate sites in the marginal seas of the western Pacific Ocean during IMAGES cruises. This special section has been proposed to publish papers presenting high-resolution records and the interpretation of climate changemechanisms revealed by these records.
