An updated and improved (from Davis et al. 2003) pollen-based seasonal gridded climate reconstruction for Europe for the entire Holocene (0-12 ka) will be presented.
The data, representing almost 60,000 individual pollen samples, include the reconstruction of seasonal (winter/summer) temperature and precipitation, and the inclusion of changes in past elevation due to post-glacial isostatic re-adjustment. These results could be useful for comparison with mid-Holocene climate model simulations,  trying to better understand what drove climate modes since climate forcing during the Holocene was relatively simple at low frequency time-scales.
