Short summary
Comparison between records reveals a coherent match between the meridional displacement of the ITCZ-SPSH system and the regional fluvial and aeolian terrigenous input variability. The aeolian input intensity and the anoxic conditions recorded by marine sediments showed a close link that suggests a common mechanism associated with SPSH displacement. Changes in sediment discharge to the continental shelf are linked to the southward displacement of the ITCZ-SPSH and Walker circulation.
