regional climate dynamics

PAGES 2k Network

The PAGES 2k Network is made up of 8 regional Working Groups. Each regional group collect and process the best time series and spatial reconstructions of important state variables of the climate system (e.g., surface and 500 hPa geopotential, temperature and precipitation). The reconstructed maps and timeseries will be analyzed in combination with the best ensemble runs of existing ESMs.

Key questions to be asked are:

1) What did the main patterns and modes of climate variability on sub-decadal to orbital timescales look and operate like?

2) How does climate variability and extreme events relate to the important primary forcing factors, namely orbital, solar and volcanic?

3) What feedbacks operated to modulate the climate response?

If you would like to be involved in one or more of the 2k Regional Working Groups, please contact the Working Group leaders for that region.
