drought impacts during the Terminal Classic (9, 11, 14). Further, the supposition that hydrological impacts were a primary cause for societal change is often challenged by archaeologists, who stress spatial variability in societal disruption across the region and the complexity of human responses to environmental change (2, 3, 12).
