Description
Sediment cores from Lake Teletskoye in the Altai Mountains of Southern Siberia (5142.90'N, 8739.50'E) were analyzed to produce a multi-proxy climate record spanning the past 800 years. The Medieval Warm Period was identifed as a climatic period evidenced between the start of the authors' record in 1210 AD and ending around 1480 AD that was "warmer and more humid than today."
