Abstract

A pollen profile obtained from lake sediments at Lunkaransar, Rajasthan, in northwest India was used along with a pollen-climate calibration function to estimate past precipitation. Between 10,500 and 3,500 yr B.P., the estimated precipitation was about 500 mm/yr, or about 200 mm/yr above the modern value. After about 3,500 yr B.P., the Lunkaransar profile indicated a desiccated lake bed.
