CLIVAR/PAGES themed session at WCRP Open Science Conference

Session C18: Using Paleoclimate Observations and Analysis for Improving Earth System Prediction
Conveners: G. Schmidt, V. Masson-Delmotte

The paleo-climate record contains an enormous amount of information regarding drivers of climate change and the climate system response. As yet, very little of this information has been systematically used to inform the future predictions made by the current state-of-the-art Earth System models. This session is focused on providing quantitative links between paleo-data (from all spheres and time-scales) and paleo-climate modeling, and suggesting possible insights into model projections of future climate change. We are especially interested in submissions relating the PMIP3 simulations of the Last Glacial Maximum, Mid-Holocene and Last Millennium in the CMIP5 database that will also contain future projections using the same models. We also welcome any use of paleo-data to constrain future responses of Earth System components (such as ice sheets or ecosystems) that are not currently well-modeled.
