‘Modes of variability in the climate system: past-present-future’, Obergurgl, Austria
2012-05-27 An event entitled ‘Modes of variability in the climate system: past-present-future’ will take place from 27 May to 1 June 2012 in Obergurgl, Austria.
Concerns about ongoing climate warming are making it necessary to develop a detailed understanding of global and regional climate variations and forecasting of their future changes using climate models. These changes pertain not only to the average global warming but also to changes in regional climate, circulation patterns and their temporal variability.
To decrease the uncertainty in these model predictions, climate models have to be validated using paleoclimate data as provided by natural climate archives. Spatially representative climate models and teleconnection patterns and their temporal variability allow for this validation and represent the vehicles to contrast rather coarsely resolved climate models to point-wise paleoclimate data.
The event will feature lectures by invited speakers, short talks by young and early stage researchers, poster sessions, round table and open discussion periods and a panel discussion on future developments.
