Summary
Abstract: A mean continental July temperature reconstruction based on pollen records from across North America quantifies temperature variations of several timescales for the past 14,000 cal yr BP. In North America, temperatures increased nearly 4C during the late glacial, reaching maximum values between 6000 and 3000 cal yr BP, after which mean July temperatures decreased.
