Pranaya Diwate, Narendra Kumar Meena, Sundeep Pandita.

Abstract
Palaeoclimate records spanning the past 2ka show abruptly changing climatic conditions. PAGES 2K consortium
(2013) provides global temperature dataset using different records for the last two millennia. Here, we present a review on the
past 2ka climate variability in India inferred from multi proxy records from various regions. We found that the data of the last
2ka in the Indian subcontinent shows great variability in the records. The possible causes for this variability are also
discussed in this paper. The variation during the last 2ka has been represented by events which were globally recognized. Till
date four major events are recognized namely Roman Warm Period, Dark Ages Cold Period, Medieval Warm Period and
Little Ice Age. There is inhomogenity has been observed in the records especially for the LIA and MWP events from region
to region. Even though in the Himalayan region itself showing two different trends during LIA and MWP. The concept of the
Anthropocene for the period of post industrial development is also emerging too introduced in time scale. The present review
suggests that, there is more scope for study in the context of human invention in the climate. Especially in Indian
subcontinent there is very few studied has been carried out in the context of finding out the earliest signature of climatic
changes due to human impact. It is also recommended that current Covid -19 pandemic should be used to evaluate the
manmade contribution to the climatic changes

Key words: Roman Warm Period, Little Ice Age, Anthropocene
