Short summary
Indonesia’s climate has been linked to El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events that often result in extensive droughts and floods over Indonesia. In this study we investigate ENSO-related signals in a tree-ring δ18O record of Javanese teak. Our results reveal a clear influence of Warm Pool El Niño events on Javanese tree-ring δ18O. These results illustrate the importance of considering ENSO flavors when interpreting palaeoclimate proxy records in the tropics.
