Pollen Viewer

Phil Leduc, Brown University Quaternary Environment Group

The NOAA Paleoclimatology World Data Center (WDC) Pollen Viewer is an interactive animation that allows the user to see spatial distribution changes in 50 North American pollen taxa from 21,000 years BP to present. The user can choose pollen type, request Latin or common name, display sites, reverse animation and compare images. There is also a link to the paper: Late Quaternary vegetation dynamics in North America: scaling from taxa to biomes.
