Description
August surface temperatures of the eastern Norwegian Sea's Voring Plateau (66.97N, 7.64E) were derived from planktic stable isotopes and foraminiferal assemblage concentrations.  The Medieval Warm Period occurred between AD 1200 and 1500 and was as much as 3.3C warmer than the Current Warm Period.
