We published a new paper on early warning signals of the termination of the African Humid Period(s) in the journal Nature Communications. A very close look at the sediments of the Chew Bahir Basin in South Ethiopia provides new insights into the structure of climate transitions in Africa. Wet climate did not simply become drier; it flickered rapidly between wet and dry, which posed major challenges for the humans in the region.
