Lucerne, Switzerland

The aim of this workshop is to identify and quantify the main natural forcing factors and the corresponding climate response based on climate models in the frame of the overall goals of HOLIVAR.

Important questions to be addressed are:
(1) What are the main forcing factors during the Holocene,
(2) how and how reliably can they be reconstructed,
(3) do paleodata indeed show a response of the climate system and
(4) is this response in agreement with up to date model simulations.
