Abstract The Iberian–Roman Humid Period (IRHP, 2600–1600 cal yr BP), is the most humid phase of the last 4000 yr in southern Spain as recorded in the sedimentary sequence of Zoñar Lake (37°29′00″N, 4°41′22″ W, 300 m a.s.l.). A varve chronology supported by several AMS 14C dates allows study of the lake evolution at annual scale in response to human impact and climate changes. There are four climate phases within this period: i) gradual transition (2600–2500 yr ago, 650–550 BC) from a previous… Expand

Late Holocene record from a Loire River incised paleovalley (French inner continental shelf): Insights into regional and global forcing factors
Abstract Sediment core KV14bis was retrieved from the Fosse du Croisic, a Loire River incised paleovalley located in the inner shelf of the Bay of Biscay. This core (5.4 m length) covers the past 2.6Expand
A seesaw in Mediterranean precipitation during the Roman Period linked to millennial-scale changes in the North Atlantic
We present a reconstruction of the change in cli- matic humidity around the Mediterranean between 3000- 1000 yr BP. Using a range of proxy archives and model sim- ulations we demonstrate that climateExpand
