Abstract

This paleoclimatic reconstruction for the past 35,000 years for northern Oman is based on an unusual approach using travertines and fracture calcites associated with hyperalkaline springs. This reconstruction shows a dominantly wet late Pleistocene up to 19,000 years B.P., when a phase of climatic deterioration began, leading to a period of hyperaridity which dominated from 16,300 to 13,000 yr B.P. The early Holocene pluvial occurred from 12,500 to 6 500 yr B.P. and was followed by renewed climatic deterioration and the current phase of hyperaridity
