Description
A δ13C profile of Globigerinoides rubber extracted from a shallow-water core in the Gulf of Taranto (3945'53"N, 1753'33"E) was used to produce a high-precision record of climate variability over the past two millennia. The Medieval Warm Period was described as an interval of high illumination (low cloud coverage) and high temperature between 800 and 1200 AD.
