MediaStudying the climate of the last two millennia
|Convener: Lucien von Gunten | Co-Conveners: Jürg Luterbacher , Eduardo Zorita , Fidel González-Rouco , Anne Hormes , Helen McGregor|
This session highlights integrative paleoclimate research on the climate of the past 2000 years. We invite presentations that provide insights into data syntheses, quantitative temperature and hydroclimate reconstructions from local to global scales, novel approaches to producing multi-proxy climate field reconstructions, and contributions critically addressing non-climatic influences on proxies used in climate reconstructions, or integration of information from proxies with different time resolutions. We also welcome abstracts on high-resolution ocean reconstructions (SSTs, salinity, ocean circulation) or integrating both marine and terrestrial data.
This session also encourages participation of presentations of new external forcing reconstructions or assessment, and discussion of existing ones as well as analysis of transient climate simulations, model-data comparison, proxy system modeling, proxy-data assimilation, as well as the attribution of past climate variability to external drivers or internal climate processes
The session is co-sponsored by the PAGES 2k project (http://www.pastglobalchanges.org/ini/wg/2k-network/intro).
