Tropical Climate Variability with a focus on Last Millenium, Mid-Holocene and Last Glacial Maximum
The workshop will consider tropical climate interannual to multidecadal variability for the Last Millennium, the Mid-Holocene and Last Glacial Maximum with the aims of:
- Synthesising available high-resolution data sets for these time periods
- Deciding how to include the information from different sensors (coral, shells, tree rings etc…) in a common framework in a way that best reflects what each type of record shows about tropical variability
- Defining joint analyses of model experiements and observations to characterise topical variability
- Determining future directions for model/data comparisons.
The workshop will lead to a multi-authored publication in a high-profile journal of the current state-of-knowledge about changes in tropical variability based on data analysis, model experiments and data-model comparisons.
Participants are requested to arrive on tuesday 20 September 2011 in order to start the meeting on 21 September 2011 in the morning.
