  • Dendroclimatological reconstruction of air temperature according to the dendrochronology of spruce in the Giant Mts. (Brázdil et al., 1997) and reconstruction of precipitation according to dendrochronology of fir in South Moravia (Brázdil et al., 2002e).

  • Use of historical economic data as a proxy data for the climate reconstruction and for the study of hydrometeorological extremes in the Czech Republic (Brázdil, Kotyza, 2000a, 2000b, Brázdil, Valášek, 2003b, Brázdil et al., 2003b, 2006eBrázdil, 2005).

  • Temperature and precipitation reconstruction in the Czech Lands in the period of 1000-1500 (Brázdil, Kotyza, 1995a, 1997) and during the last millenium (Brázdil, 1994b, 1996, Brázdil, Friedmannová, 1994, Brázdil et al., 1994a).

  • Analysis of climate change in the Czech Lands in the 16th Century and its European context (Brázdil et al., 1996d, 1999, Glaser et al., 1999, Pfister, Brázdil, 1999, Pfister et al., 1999a, 1999b, 1999c).
