Although the dramatic climate disruptions of the last glacial period have received considerable attention, relatively little has been directed toward climate variability in the Holocene (11,500 cal yr B.P. to the present). Examination of ~50 globally distributed paleoclimate records reveals as many as six periods of significant rapid climate change during the time periods 9000-8000, 6000-5000, 4200-3800, 3500-2500, 1200-1000, and 600-150 cal yr B.P. Most of the climate change events in these globally distributed records are characterized by polar cooling, tropical aridity, and major atmospheric circulation changes, although in the most recent interval (600-150 cal yr B.P.), polar cooling was accompanied by increased moisture in some parts of the tropics. Several intervals coincide with major disruptions of civilization, illustrating the human significance of Holocene climate variability. D 2004 University of Washington. All rights reserved.

    • ...The WorldClim climate data were temporally matched with modern ranges but not with all parts of historical ranges; e.g., for the Asian elephant the oldest part of the historical range dated from 3,700 cal yr B.P. The Holocene (approximately the last 11,500 years) lacked large Northern Hemisphere ice sheets and is generally characterized as a warm and stable period with some episodes of apparent rapid climate change, particularly during the mid-Holocene extending from 7,000–5,000 cal yr B.P. ...

    • ...In the northern Rocky Mountains, Stone and Fritz (2006) documented a pronounced shift in diatom-inferred hydroclimate between 4.5 and 3.5 ka BP. At the broadest scale, Mayewski et al. (2004) identified periods of rapid climate change in globally distributed Holocene climate records, one of which extended from 4.2 to 3.8 ka BP and another from 3.5 to 2.5 ka BP. Both of these overlap with Zone 5 in the combined Reader Lake and Elbow Lake ...
