Summary
Abstract: We review evidence for climate change over the past several millennia from
instrumental and high-resolution climate "proxy" data sources and climate
modeling studies. We focus on changes over the past 1 to 2 millennia. We
assess reconstructions and modeling studies analyzing a number of different
climate fields, including atmospheric circulation diagnostics, precipitation,
and drought. We ... View entire text
