An integrated terrestrial paleoenvironmental record from the Mid-Pleistocene transition, eastern North Island, New Zealand
A tephra-bearing lake sequence from near Ormond, New Zealand, provided the opportunity to conduct a multi-proxy paleoenvironmental analysis within the Mid-Pleistocene time period. A 10.5-m-thick section was measured and analysed for pollen, spores, diatoms, macrofossils, and tephra geochemistry. Palynological assemblages in the lower 4 m of the section indicate an ameliorating temperate climate and increased humidity. The upper 6.5 m is dominated by diatomite that did not yield sufficient...[Show more]
