  • AbstractThe termination of the African Humid Period in northern Africa has been described as abrupt, occurring within centuries, as well as gradual, in response to incremental decreases in summer insolation. This study examined the rapidity of the change in diatom assemblages over the period from 6.5 to 4.5 cal ka BP, in a core studied previously at a coarser resolution. This transition was characterized by high variability of assemblages, which could be related, in part, to changes in water… CONTINUE READING
