Title: Evidence for the Younger Dryas climatic event in Southeast Asia
Date: 1995

Abstract: This article reviews evidence for the Younger Dryas climatic event from the limited data available from mainland and island Southeast Asia and from deep sea cores from the region. Data from highland Indonesia and regional deep sea cores suggest a climatic reversal at the time of the Younger Dryas may be more widely detectable with finer resolution pollen analysis and additional radiocarbon dating but it should be remembered that dates of this age cannot be calibrated. Locations are suggested in the region where more sites and finer resolution analysis is needed before definite statements on the Younger Dryas can be made. At present the best evidence for its occurrence comes from one Sumatran pollen diagram but even that is very tentative.
