Baconizing Midwestern US Age Models
This repository represents an effort by the PalEON Project to re-build age models from the Neotoma Paleoecological Database using the Bayesian chronology method known as Bacon (Blaauw & Christen, 2001).
This work is used within the STEPPS pollen-prediction model as described in Dawson et al. (2016), but also represents an intellectual contribution in its own right, detailled in the RMarkdown file
