Description :
On the basis of documentary evidence, proxy-data and instrumental observations, the climatic fluctuation during the last millennium in the Czech Lands is analysed. According to narrative sources, the warmest period falls between the 1260s-1380s. The prevalence of extremly cold and also rainy periods, as an expression of the Little Ice Age, is most conspicuous in the 15th century. Since the latter half of the 19th century a rising temperature trend has manifested itself. A regional climatic scenario for the model of global warming is discussed in relation to the observed trends in Czech Lands.
