Document title

Late Pleistocene climates of Beringia, based on analysis of fossil beetles

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Thirty-one fossil beetle assemblages from central and eastern Beringia (Alaska, the Yukon Territory, and the now-submerged Bering Land Bridge) have yielded seasonal temperature estimates for the interval 43,550-9250 C 14 yr B.P. Estimates of the mean temperature of the warmest (TMAX) and coldest (TMIN) months were derived by the Mutual Climatic Range (MCR) method. The combination of MCR paleotemperature estimates and radiocarbon chronologies allow well-dated regional reconstructions of seasonal temperatures for the mid- to late Wisconsin interval
