Description:
Abstract:
Oxygen isotope and sediment composition data from Lake Chichancanab, Mexico. The data are interpreted as a moisture balance proxy, and indicate drought conditions in the years 800-1000 AD, corresponding to the collapse of the Classic Maya civilization. For mare information, see: "http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/paleo/drought/drght_mayan.html"
