The ‘Little Ice Age’ hundreds of years ago is STILL cooling the bottom of Pacific, researchers find
- The Little Ice Age brought colder-than-average temps around the 17th century
- Researchers say temperatures in deep Pacific lag behind those at the surface
- As a result, parts of the deep Pacific is now cooling from long ago Little Ice Age
The Medieval Warm Period was a period lasting between the 9th and 12th centuries during which Earth’s climate leaned on the warmer side.
It was followed not long after by the Little Ice Age, which lasted from the 16th through 19th century, though some argue it began even earlier.
According to researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Harvard University, this long-ago cooling period could still be showing its face in the temperatures of the deep ocean.
