Summary
Abstract: The data covers the time period from the present back to 2000 years before the
present. Mean summer (JJA) temperatures and Total annual precipitation for the
past 2000 years reconstructed from pollen from lakes with laminated sediments.
The laminations ensure a more precise time control than normally obtained from
radiocarbon.
