Holocene mean July temperature and winter precipitation in western Norway inferred from palynological and glaciological lake-sediment proxies
Reconstructions of mean July temperature (Tjul) and winter precipitation (Pw) for the last 11/500 years on the Folgefonna peninsula are presented. Tjul was reconstructed using pollen-climate transfer functions and Pw was ...
Multi-proxy studies in palaeolimnology
Multi-proxy studies are becoming increasingly common in palaeolimnology. Eight basic requirements and challenges for a multi-proxy study are outlined in this essay – definition of research questions, leadership, site ...
Ecology of testate amoebae (Protista) in south-central Alaska peatlands: building transfer-function models for palaeoenvironmental studies
Testate amoebae are valuable indicators of peatland hydrology and have been used in many palaeoclimatic studies in peatlands. Because the species' ecological optima may vary around the globe, the development of transfer ...
Chironomids, temperature and numerical models: a reply to Seppälä
We reply to comments by Seppälä (2001) concerning the suitability of the surface-water temperature measurements and mean July air temperature estimates used by Olanderet al. (1999) to derive quantitative chironomid-temperature ...
