The Late Maunder Minimum (LMM, 1675–1715) denotes the climax of the `Little Ice Age' in Europe with marked climate variability. Investigations into interannual and interdecadal differences of atmospheric circulation between the LMM and the period 1961–1990 have been performedand undertaken based upon sea level pressure (SLP) difference maps, empiricalorthogonal function (EOF) analysis, and objective classification techniques. Since the SLP during the LMM winterwas significantly higher in… Expand
Variability of Climate in Meridional Balkans during the Periods 1675–1715 and 1780–1830 and its Impact on Human Life
The periods from 1675–1715 (Late Maunder Minimum; LMM)and 1780–1830 (Early Instrumental Period; EIP)delineate important parts of the so-called `Little IceAge' (LIA), in which Europe experiencedExpand
The Late Maunder Minimum (1675–1715) — Climax of the ‘Little Ice Age’ in Europe
The Maunder Minimum (MM; 1645–1715) delineates the coldest phase of the so-called ‘Little Ice Age’ (LIA; variously assessed as ~AD 1300 to 1900; Holzhauser, 1997; Pfister et al., 1998; Wanner et al.,Expand
Summer Temperatures in the Tatra Mountains During the Maunder Minimum (1645–1715)
This chapter presents a variability of summer temperatures (JJA) in the Tatra Mountains during a period of relatively low solar activity, known as the Maunder Minimum (1645–1715). Results are basedExpand
