Munoz, SE, K Gajewski and MC Peros. 2010. Synchronous environmental and cultural change in the prehistory of the northeastern United States. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (USA) 107(51): 22008-22013.  doi:10.1073/pnas.1005764107. DATA
Gajewski, K., A Viau, M Sawada, D Atkinson and S Wilson. 2001. Sphagnum peatland distribution in North America and Eurasia during the past 21,000 years. Global Biogeochemical Cycles 15: 297-310. See data for carbon accumulation since the Last Glacial Maximum, maps and animations of the extent of Sphagnum peatlands during the post-glacial.

Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmosphere 106(D23): 31703-31716. These lake status grids were developed mainly for use in climate model validation but remain versatile for other paleoclimatic research. See grids.
