It is issued three times a year by the ZRC SAZU Anton Melik Geographical Institute. The publication covers all branches of geography and related sciences, and geographically focuses mainly on Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.</p> <p>Print ISSN: 1581-6613<br>Online ISSN: 1581-8314</p> Holocene climate variability in Slovenia: A review 2024-05-20T10:52:49+02:00 Matej Lipar Sonja Lojen Mateja Breg Valjavec Maja Andrič Andrej Šmuc Tom Levanič Jure Tičar Matija Zorn Mateja Ferk <p>The Slovenian climate has undergone significant fluctuations, and an understanding of the past climate is necessary to improve models and recognise long-term patterns. The cryosphere environment, such as ice core samples, provides valuable palaeoclimate data. Palynology and dendroclimatology are also effective ways to study long-term changes in vegetation and reconstruct past climates using pollen and tree proxies. Sediment cores from various locations in Slovenia have been studied to understand past environmental changes. Borehole temperature profiles as well as historical records were also used to reconstruct past climate conditions. Studies have shown specific periods when climatic changes likely played a major role, but a complete timeline of the Slovenian climate throughout the Holocene has not yet been fully developed.</p> 2024-05-20T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Authors
