Short summary
In this study, we present pollen and grain size data obtained from the Bohai Sea. The results reveal that soil development and salinity gradients are the main factors determining the vegetation dynamics of coastal wetland. Moreover, our pollen-based temperature index revealed a warm Early Holocene, a cool Middle Holocene and then a relatively warm Late Holocene. The main driving factors of temperature variation in this region are insolation, greenhouse gases and ENSO.
