Summary
Abstract: The EURO-CLIMHIST (E-CH) database is a comprehensive tool for managing,
analysing and displaying climatic (high-resolution) proxy evidence from natural
and documentary archives.

At present more than 1.2 million records are already included. A selection of
nearly half a million records is available on the internet, including data of
the Late Maunder Minimum and Switzerland. The Late Maunder Minimum (LMM;
1675-1715) is an extraordinary interval in the historical climate record, with
significant societal implications at least in Europe. It has been documented by
historical sources as well as various proxy data. Beside it, almost the full
dataset of Switzerland is available (1500 - 1863).

Access to the EuroHist climate data is obtained through the EuroHistClim
administrator.
