Summary: Millennial-scale events of the last glacial period (Dansgaard-Oeschger events (D/O)), characterized by great temperature changes in the ice core records, have also influenced the vegetation and the climate of the European continent. Three types of continental archives - the loess deposits, the pollen assemblage record of a continental margin core and speleothems - spread on western Europe along a SW-NE profile, give information about the humidity, temperature and vegetation changes that were due to these millennial scale climatic changes.
