Holocene Climate in SPEEDY-MICON MODEL: Reconstruction data
Although the climate of the Holocene (11,500 cal yr B.P. to the present) has sustained the growth and development of modern society, there is surprisingly little systematic knowledge about climate variability during this period. Many paleoclimate studies over the last decade have highlighted the extreme climate fluctuations of the last glacial interval. If we are to understand the background of natural variability underlying anthropogenic climate change, however, it is important to concentrate on climate of the more recent past.
