Abstract

The AA. present a well-dated bi-decadal record of vegetation, climate, land use, and fire frequency from a tidal marsh in the Hudson River Estuary. The classic Medieval Warm Period is evident through striking increases in charcoal and pinus dominance from-800-1300 A.D., paralleling paleorecords southward along the Atlantic seabord. Higher inputs of inorganic sediment during this interval suggest increased watershed erosion during drought conditions. European impact is manifested by a decline in arboreal pollendue to land clearance, increased weedy plant cover, and an increase in inorganic particles to the watershed
