SPM1.61PAGES Euro/Med 2k workshop (public)
|Convener: Fredrik Charpentier Ljungqvist|
Tue, 29 Apr, 10:30–12:00
The Euro-Med2k Working Group focuses on creating spatial reconstructions and modeling of past climate in the Mediterranean region (including southern Europe, the Middle East and northern Africa) over the last 2,000 years. It is the successor to the paleo-component of the MedCLIVAR project, a project endorsed by PAGES.
Lucien von Gunten: General overview and status review of the PAGES 2k project.
Johannes Werner: Report from the climate reconstruction workshop at Woods Hole.
Sebastian Wagner: The development of the Euro/Med 2k database. There are not only questions about the data resolution and dating accuracy, but also on their interpretation as climate proxies, to be considered.
Discussions, conclusions and plans for the future.
