Short summary
We present a new pollen-based palaeoclimatic reconstruction covering the period between 190,000 and 24,000 years ago from a marine sediment core located off the Namibian coast. Our work identifies increased dryness during the three warmest periods of the last interglacial involving atmospheric and oceanic reorganisations in southern Africa that are linked to precession minima.
