Messinia, Greece, 23-25 April 2014

Abstract: Holocene climate reveals notable changes in the Mediterranean region (e.g. Finné et al. 2011; Roberts et al. 2011). The region also bears a long history of human society dynamics, making it a suitable site for exploring interactions between climate, environment and humans over a variety of time scales (e.g. Weiss 2012; Walsh 2013; Kaniewski et al. 2013). A workshop addressing these issues took place at the Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO), Costa Navarino, Greece. Sixty-one participants from a total of 16 countries attended. They represented a range of disciplines, including history, archeology, paleoclimatology, hydrology and modeling.
