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.
