A deep-sea core collected on the continental slope off northern California contains a pollen stratigraphy for the past 20,000 yr that can be correlated to the pollen stratigraphy from the upper section of Clear Lake core CL-73-4. The occurrence in one sequence of pollen, reflecting the local continental paleoclimates, and marine microfossils reflecting the local paleoceanography, allows a comparison of concurrent responses of the local ocean and adjacent continental area to global climate changes. The interpretation of the two data sets gives a complex progression of changes that are probably interrelated, such as upwelling that produced coastal fogs. The changes...
