Modern and Fossil Pollen Data


Palynology research scientists from around the world contribute pollen data to the NOAA Paleoclimatology World Data Center (WDC). There are pollen counts, related information, and various derived data sets. Users can access or contribute data. There are several links on obtaining WDC data, other data archives, software (including Tilia and PALYHELP), and other paleoclimatology, climatology, and botany sites.

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
