The meeting aims to enhance interactions between scientists working in paleoclimate reconstructions of the late Holocene in South America and the Antarctic Peninsula. This is the second meeting of LOTRED-SA (Long-Term climate Reconstruction and Dynamics of (southern) South America), following the one held in Malargüe-Argentina in 2006 ( LOTRED-SA is part of the PAGES 2K network.

The objective of the symposium is to gather experts from different fields in climate dynamics, glaciology and paleoclimatology (data and models), in order to review current knowledge and available data sets, to discuss the interpretation of proxy data, and to search for calibration and quantification techniques of proxy data sets in South America and the Antarctic Peninsula.

The long-term goal of this collaborative meeting is to continue working towards a comprehensive view of regional climate variability and environmental change during the past few millennia, to produce a gridded data set of climate variables from high-resolution multi-proxy time series.
