The Canadian Pollen Database

Canadian pollen database(101790 bytes)

The Canadian Pollen Database project was initiated in the 1980's by J.C. Ritchie, then at the U of Toronto. Digital files were created of pollen diagrams, mostly from western and northern Canada. Pollen data were entered from the original counts sheets to be used for mapping and quantitative reconstructions of past climates (e.g. Anderson et al., 1989, 1991; Sawada et al., 1999; Gajewski et al., 2000). Many of these data have been already entered into the North American Pollen Database (NAPD). Here we are making available these data in the form of Excel files. Pollen counts, chronology information references and metadata are found in the files. We would like to thank the analysts of these data for their contributions. These data will be available in the NAPD and NEOTOMA; we are making them available here for convenience. For questions or further information, contact Konrad Gajewski.

The original database compilation was funded by an NSERC Strategic grant to JC Ritchie. This page is a contribution of the CSHD Research Network funded by NSERC and AES.

You may wish to download F702Excel, a program which imports NAPD f70 files to Excel format.
