Abstract

A 7.86 m sediment core from Swamp Lake in Yosemite National Park, provides a continuous record of environmental change over the last ca. 16,000 yr, as inferred from pollen, macrofossil, and microscopic charcoal analyses. The core stratigraphy documents late Wisconsin (Tioga stage) deglaciation between >16,000 and 13,700 yr B.P. The record suggests that a cooling trend began ca. 6 500 yr B.P. and persisted until ca. 3,700 yr B.P. when the modern climatic regime was established
