Abstract: Climate has always attracted considerable interest, and climate observations have been made in various ways for most of human history. Regional climate and how it varies is of particular interest, as it sets the scene for our everyday life. This thesis analyses the past climate of the Baltic Sea Basin and relates ice coverage and river runoff to changes in atmospheric circulation. The regional climate of the Baltic Sea Basin has been analysed using relevant climatic time series for the past 10... more
