Summary
Abstract: The Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) Tropical Terrestrial Data synthesis provides
reconstructions of mean temperature of the coldest month (MTCO), mean annual
temperature (MAT), plant available moisture (PAM) and runoff (P-E based on
pollen, plant-macrofossil, noble gas (from groundwater) d18O (from
speleothems) and lake-level data covering the interval 18±2ka (14C). The
reliability of the data have ... View entire text
