Short summary
Based on a Holocene oxygen stable isotope record from Lake Sidi Ali (Morocco) we correlate Western Mediterranean precipitation anomalies with North Atlantic ice-rafted debris (Bond) events to identify a probable teleconnection between Western Mediterranean winter rains and subpolar North Atlantic cooling phases. Our data show a noticeable similarity between Western Mediterranean winter rain minima and Bond events during the Early Holocene and an opposite pattern during the Late Holocene.
