Abstract: The LGM Tropical Terrestrial Data Synthesis (Farrera et al., 1999) contains
quantitative reconstructions of mean temperature of the coldest month (MTCO)
and mean annual ground temperature (MAT), and qualitative reconstructions of
plant-available moisture (PAM) and runoff (equivalent to precipitation minus
evaptranspiration, P-E) from radiocarbon-dated terrestrial sites ... View entire text
