Holocene climate change in central Turkey

Last 6000 years climate record from Tecer Lake in central Turkey were published in Holoceneby Kuzucuoğlu et al. According to the mineralogy and grain-size distribution of lake sediments, during the mid-Holocene transition, intense droughts occured at the end of the sixth, fifth and fourth millennia BP. The characteristics of some climatic phases at Tecer seem specific to the location of the sequence which, when compared with other sites in the eastern Mediterranean, may record variations in the extent of different climatic systems.
