Younger Dryas to early Holocene (12.9 to 8.1 ka) limnological and hydrological change at Barley Lake, California (northern California Coast Range)
Abstract Paleoperspectives of climate provide important information for understanding future climate, particularly in arid regions such as California, where water availability is uncertain from year
Late Holocene hydroclimatic variability linked to Pacific forcing: evidence from Abbott Lake, coastal central California
Abbott Lake (Monterey County, California) is one of only a few natural, permanent lakes located in coastal central California. As a result, it represents an important site for assessing
Pacific Southwest United States Holocene Droughts and Pluvials Inferred From Sediment δ18O(calcite) and Grain Size Data (Lake Elsinore, California)
Records of past climate can inform us on the natural range and mechanisms of climate change. In the arid Pacific southwest United States (PSW), which includes southern California, there exist a
Diatom Record of Holocene Moisture Variability in the San Bernardino Mountains, California, USA
Lower Bear Lake, in the San Bernardino Mountains, contains a Holocene paleohydrology record for southern California. The diatom and sediment geochemistry record indicates that the region experienced
Desert wetlands record hydrologic variability within the Younger Dryas chronozone, Mojave Desert, USA
Abstract One of the enduring questions in the field of paleohydrology is how quickly desert wetland ecosystems responded to past episodes of abrupt climate change. Recent investigations in the Las


An Alpine Lacustrine Record of Early Holocene North American Monsoon Dynamics from Dry Lake, Southern California (USA)
Dry Lake (2763 m), located in the San Bernardino Mountains of southern California, USA, provides a high-resolution climate record from the coastal southwest depicting early Holocene terrestrial
Atmospheric circulation during Holocene lake stands in the Mojave Desert: evidence of regional climate change
IT is commonly thought that the climate conditions that supported lakes over a period of years in the Mojave Desert in southern California, only existed before 8,000 yr BP and that the environment
Insolation forcing of Holocene climate change in Southern California: a sediment study from Lake Elsinore
Lake Elsinore is the largest natural lake in Southern California. As such, the lake provides a unique opportunity to investigate terrestrial climate on timescales otherwise underrepresented in the
Rise and fall of late Pleistocene pluvial lakes in response to reduced evaporation and precipitation: Evidence from Lake Surprise, California
Widespread late Pleistocene lake systems of the Basin and Range Province indicate substantially greater moisture availability during glacial periods relative to modern times, but the climatic factors
Extreme southwestern margin of late Quaternary glaciation in North America: Timing and controls
Well-preserved latero-frontal moraines in the eastern San Bernardino Mountains of southern California provide evidence for several glacial advances during the late Quaternary and mark the
