ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which focused on temperature variability and extreme temperature events in Europe. The researchers studied one of the most interesting times of the early instrumental period in northwest Europe, which is from 1730 to 1745. They tried to place the extremely cold year of 1740 and the unusual warmth of the 1730s decade. They showed how estimates of natural climatic variability based on more recent data may not fully encompass the possible known range.

The idea is based on the premise that the future change of TC track characteristics is primarily determined by changes in large-scale...
