The Little Ice Age in Europe (between about 1350 and 1850) marked the largest glacier extent over the entire Holocene period. Although several authors have investigated the causes of the substantial glacier advances in the mid-19th century and the rapid retreat following this phase, a conclusive insight linking all relevant components is still lacking. The so-called "Paradox of the Little Ice Age" refers to the yet unsolved problem why glaciers in the Alps experienced rapid growth around 1850… 


Solving the paradox of the end of the Little Ice Age in the Alps
The causes and timing of the Little Ice Age (fifteenth to nineteenth centuries) are still unclear (Crowley, 2000; Bond et al., 2001; Shindell et al., 2001). During the last part of this event
19th century glacier retreat in the Alps preceded the emergence of industrial black carbon deposition on high-alpine glaciers
Abstract. Light absorbing aerosols in the atmosphere and cryosphere play an important role in the climate system. Their presence in ambient air and snow changes the radiative properties of these
End of the Little Ice Age in the Alps forced by industrial black carbon
It is observed that industrial black carbon in snow began to increase markedly in the mid-19th century and shown with simulations that the associated increases in absorbed sunlight by blackcarbon in snow and snowmelt were of sufficient magnitude to cause this scale of glacier retreat.
Little Ice Age climate reconstruction from ensemble reanalysis of Alpine glacier fluctuations
Mountain glaciers sample a combination of cli- mate fields - temperature, precipitation and radiation - by accumulation and melting of ice. Flow dynamics acts as a transfer function that maps volume
Glacier and lake-level variations in west-central Europe over the last 3500 years
On the basis of glacier and lake-level records, this paper attempts, for the first time, a comparison between high-resolution palaeohydrological and palaeoglaciological data in west-central Europe
Alpine glaciers to disappear within decades
Past, present and potential future glacier cover in the entire European Alps has been assessed from an integrated approach, combining in‐situ measurements, remote sensing techniques and numerical
Holocene climatic variations—Their pattern and possible cause
Glacier Fluctuations in the Western Swiss and French Alps in the 16th Century
This article reviews evidence for 16th century glacial fluctuations in the western Swiss and the French Alps. Previously available sources and new historical sources, as well as dendrochronological
Cold decade (AD 1810–1819) caused by Tambora (1815) and another (1809) stratospheric volcanic eruption
Climate records indicate that the decade of AD 1810–1819 including “the year without a summer” (1816) is probably the coldest during the past 500 years or longer, and the cause of the climatic
Strong Alpine glacier melt in the 1940s due to enhanced solar radiation
A 94‐year time series of annual glacier melt at four high elevation sites in the European Alps is used to investigate the effect of global dimming and brightening of solar radiation on glacier mass
