The Great Basin is the largest area of contiguous endorheic watersheds in North spans nearly all of Nevada, much of Oregon and Utah, and portions of California, Idaho, and is noted for both its arid climate and the basin and range topography that varies from the North American low point at Badwater Basin in Death Valley to the highest point of the contiguous United States Coordinates: 40°40′N °40′W / .

      Great Basin National Park and the Nevada Northern Railway in Ely, NV are teaming up to offer the NNRW's Star Train! Riders begin their journey at the train station in Ely and ride the historic northern train route through Ely. Great Basin's dark sky rangers will be onboard to talk trivia, give out prizes, and answer questions. The Great Basin is an area that includes the high desert regions between the Sierra Nevada and the Rocky Mountains. It is bounded on the north by the Columbia Plateau and on the south by the Colora.

      The only open site so far excavated is the productive Karlo site located some 15 miles north of Honey Lake (Riddellc). Evidence provided by the faunal remains suggest a climate similar to or perhaps even moister than that found today. The elk-remains recovered do not suggest the dry, Altithermal period of occupation, but rather the moist Medithermal period. Cultural affinities with. S.D.

Late Holocene Great Basin prehistory is a spatial and temporal mosaic of lifeways related to changing physical and social environments. Evidence shows changes in technology, subsistence, foraging tactics, and population density, though the causes of these changes are still under investigation.

Donald K. Grayson synthesizes what we now know about the p years in the Great Basin―its climate, lakes, glaciers, plants, animals, and peoples―based on information gleaned from the region’s exquisite natural archives in such repositories as lake cores, packrat middens, tree rings, and archaeological by: In contrast, the greatest retreat of Great Basin lakes occurred during a period of high temperatures and drought sometimes called the Altithermal, from about 7, years ago.
