• Abrupt high-latitude climate events and decoupled seasonal trends during the Eemian 

      Salonen, J. Sakari; Helmens, Karin F.; Brendryen, Jo; Kuosmanen, Niina; Väliranta, Minna; Goring, Simon; Korpela, Mikko; Kylander, Malin; Philip, Annemarie; Plikk, Anna; Renssen, Hans; Luoto, Miska (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-07-20)
      The Eemian (the Last Interglacial; ca. 129–116 thousand years ago) presents a testbed for assessing environmental responses and climate feedbacks under warmer-than-present boundary conditions. However, climate syntheses ...

M.; Granoszewski, Wojciech; Helmens, Karin F.; Huntley, Brian; Kondratienė, Ona; Kalnina, Laimdota; Kupryjanowicz, Mirosława; Malkiewicz, Małgorzata; Milner, Alice M.; Nita, Małgorzata; Noryśkiewicz, Bożena; Pidek, Irena A.; Reille, Maurice; Salonen, J. Sakari; Šeirienė, Vaida; Winter, Hanna; Tzedakis, P. Chronis; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The Eemian interglacial represents a natural experiment on how past vegetation with negligible human impact responded to amplified temperature changes compared to the Holocene. Here, we assemble 47 carefully selected Eemian ...
    • Plant macrofossil evidence for an early onset of the Holocene summer thermal maximum in northernmost Europe 

      Väliranta, Minna; Salonen, J. Sakari; Heikkilä, Maija; Amon, Leeli; Helmens, Karin; Klimaschewski, Andrea; Kuhry, P.; Kultti, Seija; Poska, Anneli; Shala, Shyhrete; Veski, Siim; Birks, Hilary H. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-04-10)
      Holocene summer temperature reconstructions from northern Europe based on sedimentary pollen records suggest an onset of peak summer warmth around 9,000 years ago. However, pollen-based temperature reconstructions are ...
