Title: Global paleoclimatic data base for 6000 yr BP

Abstract

Pollen, lake-level, and marine plankton data form a global data base with 797 stations for 6000 yr BP. Sets of pollen samples are available from eastern North America, Alaska, Europe, the Soviet Union, South America, and New Zealand. Sites with lake-level data provide coverage in Australia, Africa, southwestern Asia, and western North America, as well as in eastern North America and South America. Marine plankton data are mainly available from the North Atlantic and northwestern Indian Oceans, but isolated samples exist in the Pacific and Southern Oceans. Estimated temperature values are available from eastern North America, Europe, and the ocean samples, and estimated precipitation values exist for central North America and for isolated sites in India and Africa. 69 references, 17 figures, 12 tables.
