Summary
Abstract: For over a decade, archaeologists have been trying to unlock the
mystery surrounding one ancient society's collapse of the Classic Maya. Did
human-induced sociopolitical or ecological change cause the collapse of this
highly advanced Mesoamerican civilization, or could natural climate variability
of the Yucatan Peninsula have contributed to the collapse? Paleoclimatologists
are studying the climatic history of this region to provide archaeologists with
the climate context in which the Maya civilization evolved, flourished and
ultimately collapsed.


Purpose: Paleoclimatic Education
