Atlantic Ocean modulated hydroclimate of the subtropical northeastern Mexico since the last glacial maximum and comparison with the southern US

Abstract : Proxy records generated from chemical composition and radiocarbon dating of a sediment sequence collected from the El Potosi Basin provide information about variable hydroclimate of the subtropical northeastern Mexico since the last glacial maximum (LGM). Minimal amounts of runoff and more carbonate deposition during >19ka represent the LGM. The deglaciation was wetter compared to the LGM and enhanced runoff during ∼19–12katransported more Ti-bearing clastics from a relatively humid watershed. Over the deglaciation, the basin received more runoff during the Bølling-Allerød compared to the Heinrich Stadial 1 and Younger Dryas. Reduction in the amount of runoff during ∼10–1kaand deposition of unweathered Si-bearing clastics during ∼4–1kasuggest that the Holocene was drier compared to the deglaciation. Hydroclimates of the northeastern Mexico and southern US were synchronous during the LGM as well as deglaciation. Change from the drier LGM to wetter Bølling-Allerød occurred as the Gulf of Mexico became warmer and the region received more summer precipitation. However, the dissimilarities observed in regional hydroclimates of the Holocene need further evaluation
