Volcanic impacts on climate and society during the 500-1250 Common Era

Data:

  • IPCC / Paleo Model Intercomparison Project 5 (PMIP5) model data
  • Archaeology records for Scandinavia
  • Ice core records in Greenland and Antarctica

Method: Data analyses of:

  • surface climate changes after large volcanic eruptions (VE) in PMIP5 data;
  • archaeology records for discontinuities related to large VE and their climate effects.

    Questions:

    • How was Scandinavian climate impacted by large tropical and extratropical VE?
    • Was the increased use of outland resources a response to climatic changes?

    • What is the volcanic signal in ice core records?
