Corrigendum by Tadeusz Niedźwiedź (Chapter 3)

Corrigendum and explanations concerning BACCII Chapter 3 “The Historical Time Frame (Past 1000 years)”, pages 57 and 64.

Text on page 57:

“Recent investigations of Fennoscandia by Ljungqvist(2010) showed that the MWP occurred between 800 and 1300. At that time, warm-season (May–September) temperatures exceeded the contemporary warming of the end of twentieth century by about +0.5 °C.”

must be corrected as follows (corrections are in red):

“Recent investigations of temperature variability in the extratropical Northern Hemisphere by Ljungqvist (2010a) showed that the MWP occurred between 800 and 1300. At that time in Scandinavia north of 60° N (Ljungqvist 2010b), warm-season (May–September) temperatures exceeded the contemporary warming of the end of twentieth century by about +0.5 °C.”

Also in the References on page 64:

Ljungqvist FC (2010) A new reconstruction of temperature variability in the extratropical Northern Hemisphere during the last two millennia. Geogr Ann A 92:339-351”

must be corrected and supplemented by the second paper of Ljungqvist (2010b):

Ljungqvist FC (2010a) A new reconstruction of temperature variability in the extratropical Northern Hemisphere during the last two millennia. Geogr Ann A 92:339-351

Ljungqvist FC (2010b) A regional approach to the Medieval Warm Period  and the Little Ice Age. In: Climate Change and Variability, Suzanne Simard (Ed.), ISBN: 978-953-307-144-2, InTech, 1-25, DOI: 10.5772/9798. Available from: http://www.intechopen.com/books/climate-change-and-variability/a-regional-approach-to-the-medieval-warm-period-and-the-little-ice-age

Additional comment and explanation

The information that during “warm-season (May–September) temperatures exceeded the contemporary warming of the end of twentieth century by about +0.5 °C” was taken from the curves of a temperature reconstruction in the second paper of FC Ljungqvist (2010b), presented on page 7 on Fig. 3. The level of temperature deviation is about +0.4°C at the end of the 20th century, and +0.9°C in the second half of the 12th century. The difference is +0.5 °C.
