The upcoming AGU fall meeting, to be held December 9-13 2013 in San Francisco, CA will have a session on “PP012. Linking palaeoclimatic information from natural archives and
instrumental data: Forcing factors on climatic variability.”
Abstract are currently being accepted, and submission deadline is August 6, 2013
Description: Instrumental data are of great interest since they provide direct observation of climate evolution. Yet, climate archives allow deciphering past climate changes on larger temporal scales.This session will host contributions on the identification of forcing factors on climate recorded in natural archives (marine/lake sediments, ice cores, speleothems, tree rings) and instrumental observations, from the last century to the last interglacial. New statistical methodologies and applied quantitative studies devoted to calibrating archive-derived signals using of instrumental data are encouraged, in order to extend further back in time the understanding of climate variability.
