Climate variability in Antarctica and Southern Hemisphere in the past 2000 years
Event Type: Conferences and Workshops
When: 4 September 2018 to 5 September 2018
Where: Cambridge, United Kingdom
CLIVASH2k is a PAGES 2k project, which aims to improve our understanding of large scale modes of climate variability and the mechanisms and drivers of climate change in Antarctica, the sub-Antarctic and the wider Southern Hemisphere during the past 2000 years. Investigating how large-scale modes of atmospheric circulation, such as the Southern Annular Mode (SAM) and the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO), influence the climate in Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere on a regional scale.
Together with support from two SCAR scientific research programmes, AntClim21 and PAIS, we will be hosting a 2-day workshop investigating climate variability in Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere over the past 2000 years.
The workshop is open to all. We want to engage a broad spectrum of the scientific community, including paleoclimate data gathers (such as ice cores, lake sediments, marine records, and terrestrial records), climatologists and climate modellers. We especially encourage those who wish to be actively contribute to the CLIVASH2k project goals, including contribution to synthesis products and publications. The workshop will be informative but be prepared to get involved!
Our aim is to review and evaluate our current understanding of the drivers of Southern Hemisphere climate variability, through short presentations, posters and discussion sessions.
A full programme will be available on the CLIVASH2k webpage shortly.
