FIGURE 9.1 5 Reconstructions of mean annual temperature and annual precipitation at Les Echets, (left) and La Grande Pile, France (right) (for locations, see Fig. 9.17).Values are expressed as deviations from modern values (9.5 °C and 1080 mm at La Grande Pile, and 11 °C and 800 mm at Les Echets). Error bars are computed by Monte Carlo simulation.The chronology is approximate before the Upper Pleniglacial, being dated by correlation with the SPECMAP marine isotope record, shown on the right (cf. Section 6.3.3) (Guiot et al., 1989). Compare this with Fig. 9.19.
