We reconstructed the climate of the Great Hungarian Plain between the years, 7-32 ka BP using a malaco-thermometer method. The reconstructions is based on seven Gastropod taxa, for which optimal temperature and tolerance ranges have been determined. The temporal scales of the malacofaunal levels were calibrated with radiocarbon data. We compared our paleotemperature values with the temperature values of existing climatic curves and found the same climatic periods. -Authors
