Short summary
Reconstructions of the last 2000-year climatic conditions along the Iberian Margin, a vulnerable region regarding current global warming, reveal a long-term cooling in sea surface temperature (SST) ending with the 19th century and centennial-scale variability that exposes warm SSTs throughout the first 1300 years followed by the colder Little Ice Age. The Industrial Era starts by 1800 CE, with an SST rise and a second increase in SST at ca. 1970 CE, particularly marked in the southern region.
