Description
The authors compiled and analyzed a database of Holocene radiocarbon dates from fluvial deposits throughout Spain (~ 40N, 1W) in an effort to identify episodes of increased fluvial activity. A period of increased frequency of large magnitude floods occurred between AD 700 and 1160 and "appear to coincide with the Medieval Warm Period."
