This dataset projects the Global Environmental Stratification (GEnS) (Metzger, 2013) onto palaeoclimatic models of the mid-Holocene and Last Glacial Maximum. A Random Forest Classifier was applied to nine PMIP3 climate scenarios for the mid-Holocene, and three scenarios for the Last Glacial Maximum at a 5 arc-minute resolution following the methodology of Soteriades et al., (2017). This dataset summarises palaeo-environmental change for the mid-Holocene and Last Glacial Maximum using categorical classes of Environmental Zones and Strata.
