Abstract

Regional water budget tendencies reported by 14C-dated field data are correlated with Late Quaternary cooling and warming phases. There are clear differences in chronological sequences between the subtropics and tropics. The aridification gradient rises exponentially from subtropical arid to humid innertropical Africa whereas the humidification gradient shows a reverse structure. Humid tropical Africa is less susceptible to climatic change than semiarid regions and the arid zone is least affected
