The paper is oriented on social vulnerability to climate in Switzerland and in the Czech Lands during the early 1770s. Documentary sources of climate related to man-made archives are discussed. Methods of temperature and precipitation reconstruction based on this evidence as well as climate impact analyses are presented. Modelling of Little Ice Age-type(More)
Research interests: Climatic and environmental change in the tropics and subtropics; environmental reconstruction (mainly based on diatoms and stable isotopes). The primary research area is the tropical Americas, with a particular interest in 1) reconstructing changes in climate (e.g. Mexican monsoon, ENSO), 2) identification of spatial patterns of change(More)

" Interface free energy is the contribution to the free energy of a system due to the presence of an interface separating two coexisting phases at equilibrium ". It is also called interfacial free energy or surface tension. The content of the article is 1) the definition of the interface free energy from first principles of statistical mechanics; 2) a(More)
