The 1816 ‘year without a summer’ in an atmospheric reanalysis
Abstract. Two hundred years ago a very cold and wet summer devastated agriculture in Europe and North America, causing widespread food shortages, unrest and suffering – the "year without a summer". This is usually blamed on the eruption of Mount Tambora, in Indonesia, the previous April, but making a link between these two events has proven difficult, as the major impacts were at smaller space and time-scales than we can reconstruct with tree-ring observations and climate model simulations. Here we show that the very limited network of station barometer observations for the period is nevertheless enough to enable a dynamical atmospheric reanalysis to reconstruct the daily weather of summer 1816, over much of Europe. Adding stratospheric aerosol from the Tambora eruption to the reanalysis improves its reconstruction, explicitly linking the volcano to the weather impacts.
They do get some reasonable tremors in Dalmatia. Family friend took me up the mountain once to the village where has family once lived. Earthquake in the seventies caused some damage, enough that the whole population up sticks and relocated to the beach and built a new village.
I think that tourism was an attractor and mountain life was reasobably hard, but the quake was a tipping point.
I doubt it! Croatians couldnt give a crp about anything other then God, stuff they grow/brew, and leaving as much as possible till tommorrow
Legend has it a bunch of hare krishna turned up in the '60s and started chanting on the pier, within 30 secs they were bruised and in the water!
