Climate History Network

A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change

Special Issue of Méditerranée on the Little Ice Age in the Mediterranean

mediterranneeThe latest issue of the journal (dated 2014, but only just released) compiles a number of studies from diverse disciplines which together help define the geographical and temporal characteristics of the Little Ice Age in the Mediterranean.  These range from studies of floods in Spain, to documentary records in Venice, to pollen in Syria and sea-level changes in the Caspian.  Introductory and concluding articles discuss the historiographical significance of this ongoing research (although I would beg to differ with the author of the Postface that there is really much divide between French and “Anglo-Saxon” approaches to climate and history).
