The Early 19th Century Climate of the Bahamas and a Comparison with
20th Century Averages, Michael Chenoweth,Climatic Change
40, 577-603 (1998).
Bahamian temperature records from 1811 to 1845 were compared with
observations from 1961 to 1990 and revealed that, in the latter period,
annual average temperatures were 0.4° C warmer, rainfall was more
frequent, and gale- force winds were 85% more frequent. In the earlier
period, winds were more northerly, indicating that high pressure over the
southeast United States was more common then.

Climate Reconstructions: A Case Study from Castille (Spain) for 16341648
A.D., F. S. Rodrigo, M. J. Esteban-Parra, and Y. Castro-Diez,Climatic
Change 40, 625-645 (1998).
The private letters of members of the Jesuits from 1634 to 1648 revealed
climate information for that period in Castille, showing that intense
rainfall and cold air waves swept the Iberian Peninsula during the Little
Northern North American Tree-Ring Evidence for Regional Temperature
Changes after Major Volcanic Events, R. D. Darrigo and G. C. Jacoby,Climatic
Change 41, 1-15 (1999).
Tree-ring data at 13 sites along the northern treeline in Canada and the
United States showed varied responses to known volcanic eruptions in 1640,
1783, 1815, and 1835. The regional variation is attributed to the
distribution of volcanism-induced cooling by atmospheric circulation
