CLIVASH2k scientific goals
CLIVASH2k will build upon the PAGES regional networks (Antarctica2k, LOTRED-SA and Aus2k) to investigate southern hemisphere climate variability over the past 2000 years. We will explore the links and teleconnections between mid and high-latitudes through the assimilation of a range of proxy archives, such as ice cores, lake sediments, ocean sediments, and peat records, from Antarctica, the sub-Antarctic and the wider Southern Hemisphere.
The aims of this working group are:
- To enhance our understanding of Antarctic, sub-Antarctic and Southern Hemisphere climate variability over the past 2000 years.
- Evaluate the key drivers of Southern Hemisphere climate variability on regional to hemispheric scales.
- Work towards a community based multi-proxy reconstruction of key modes of variability over the past 2000 years and how they relate to climate in Antarctica, the sub-Antarctic and the wider Southern Hemisphere.
