Description :
Information on extreme rains and floods during the last millennium is gathered on the basis of various records. It is possible to distinguish heavy downpours, continuous rains, rainy seasons, rapid snowmelts and combinations of all of them. On this basis the A. describes phases with higher and lower frequencies of extreme rains and floods in Europe in a regionally-differentiated manner. The phase of the Little Ice Age is well expressed throughout Europe, although its particular events were never simultaneous. In the final discussion the A. connects the causes of these variabilities in space and time with fluctuation in solar radiation and volcanic activity.
