Abstract

Research on the last 1-2 ka has resulted in several multi-proxy reconstructions of global and hemispheric temperature, and other climatic parameters (e.g., Rutherford et al., 2005; Mann et al., 2006; 2008; Luterbacher et al., 2004). Despite this, we still do not sufficiently understand the precise sequence of changes related to regional climate forcings, internal variability, system feedbacks, and the responses of surface climate, land-cover, biosphere and hydrosphere. Furthermore, many parts of the globe lack adequate paleorecords for comparison with model simulations, and high-resolution instrumental datasets are sparse.
