Climate of the Past Mid-Holocene climate change in Europe : a data-model comparison

  title={Climate of the Past Mid-Holocene climate change in Europe : a data-model comparison},
  author={Simon Brewer and Jo{\"e}l Guiot and Franck Torre},
We present here a comparison between the outputs of 25 General Circulation Models run for the midHolocene period (6 ka BP) with a set of palaeoclimate reconstructions based on over 400 fossil pollen sequences distributed across the European continent. Three climate parameters were available (moisture availability, temperature of the coldest month and growing degree days), which were grouped together using cluster analysis to provide regions of homogenous climate change. Each model was then… CONTINUE READING
