Folsom drought and episodic drying on the Southern High Plains from 10,900-10,200 C 14 yr B.P.
This paper presents data and interpretation for terminal Pleistocene and early Holocene environments on the Southern High Plains that both refine and contrast with previous interpretations. In particular, evidence is presented that significant characteristics of the late Holocene/modern environment of the Great Plains appeared during the Paleoindian occupation (11,200-8000 C 14 yr B.P.). This paper deals with the issue of drought during the Paleoindian period, drought representing a temporary moisture deficit in relation to average precipitation
