Mega-Droughts of The Last Millennium – What are their Causes and Impacts?

We took a look at Mega-Droughts of the last millennium. A way to obtain information about climate variations is to use proxies. They help to answer questions like: What causes such extraordinary drought events? What consequences do they have? What can we learn for the future? Is there a difference between past and current/future Mega-droughts?
