SPM2.61PAGES Euro/Med 2k workshop (by invitation only)
|Convener: Fredrik Charpentier Ljungqvist|
Tue, 29 Apr, 08:30–10:00
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.
Schedule and agenda
Fredrik Charpentier Ljungqvist: Opening and introduction. Brief status update followed by an open discussion of what type of hydrological reconstruction we ought to aim for. Should our goal be a quantitative calibrated precipitation reconstruction or some kind of index? If we choose the latter, how will our product relate to the up-coming Old World Drought Atlas?
Jürg Luterbacher: The agenda for the Euro/Med 2k meeting in Soria, Spain, in September. Discussions about the focus of the meeting. Should the major focal point be a hydrological reconstruction or an additional temperature reconstruction based also on low-resolution proxies?
