When: 
Thu, 06/19/2014
Where: 
Aberdeen, Scotland

The period of global cooling commonly referred to as the 'Little Ice Age' (LIA) covered the period ca AD 1200-1900 and had a significant impact on landscapes in terms of glacial/periglacial processes, land use change, the redistribution of blown sand, etc. In the North Atlantic/European region, asynchronous glacial advances in the Alps, Scandinavia and Iceland suggest that local climate was sensitive, but responded differently, to changes in oceanic and atmospheric circulation dynamics during this period, with implications for landscape response.

Our Coasts: Legacies and Futures
