Short summary
This study focuses on understanding climatic and oceanographic variations that took place during the last 1000 years. We studied sediment samples from the Labrador Sea, looking for evidence of events of freshwater and iceberg discharges to this region. The importance of this study is to evaluate when these events happened and their consequences. The freshening of the Labrador Sea region may have played a major role in promoting cooling during the 15th to 19th centuries.
