PMIP 2 diagnostic for mid-Holocene precipitation over northern Africa

How to cite this Dataset

Description

This dataset provides the latitudinal distribution of biomes (reconstructed at individual pollen sites) in northern Africa today and during the mid-Holocene (6000 ±500 yr B.P.) and the maximum and minimum estimates of the increase in precipitation (ΔP) required to support grassland at each latitude. As a model benchmark, the simulated change in ΔP is required to lie above/within the ΔP required to support grassland at all latitudes from 0-23° N.
