Abstract

Historical documentation describing events on the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula allows us to reconstruct the record of catastrophic floods. Through this information, it is possible to identify and to date three climatic oscillations within the so-called ‘Little Ice Age’: 1570–1630, 1760–1800 and 1830–1870, which coincide with advances in some Alps glaciers.
