In addition, the study found that MWP temperatures were warmer than those claimed to be "unprecedented" in the 20th century. The research also indicates a strong solar-climate relationship.
- Kitagawa and Matsumoto also report finding significant temperature periodicities of 187, 89, 70, 55 and 44 years. Noting that the 187-year cycle closely corresponds to the well-known Suess cycle of solar activity and that the 89-year cycle compares well with the Gleissberg solar cycle, they conclude that their findings provide further support for a sun-climate relationship.
