Short summary
Monsoons and westerly winds interact with each other in the middle to low latitudes. We track millennial-scale evolution characteristics of monsoons and westerly winds over the past 21 000 years. In the monsoon-dominated regions of Asia, a humid climate prevails in the past 6000–10 000 years, while in the westerly-wind-dominated regions of Asia, the climate is relatively humid around 21 000 years and 6000 years ago.
