Historical climatology paper

paleolink cp fig july 19Members of the PAGES 2k Network PALEOLINK project published a new paper yesterday in Climate of the Past which investigates the research potential of historical climatology.

"The weather behind words – new methodologies for integrated hydrometeorological reconstruction through documentary sources" by Salvador Gil-Guirado, Juan José Gómez-Navarro, and Juan Pedro Montávez, presents a new methodology (COST) that allows the performance of climate reconstructions with monthly resolution.

The variability of the climatic series obtained are coherent with previous studies. The new proposed method is objective and is not affected by social changes, which allows the study of regions with different languages and cultures.
