October 2010
CO2 Science;10/6/2010, Vol. 13 Issue 40, p6
The article discusses a 2010 research study to determine whether a Medieval Warm Period occurred in Japan. The researchers showed two warm temperature peaks of 7.6°C in the middle of the tenth century and 7.1°C at the beginning of the fourteenth century. They also found that the reconstructed tenth century temperatures are somewhat higher than present temperatures after subtracting urban warming effects.
