Regional paleoclimate modeling

paleolink jun 18The PAGES 2k Network project PALEOLINK recently published their first paper on perspectives of regional paleoclimate modeling.

Authors Patrick Ludwig et al. present a review of the added value of the regional climate modeling approach within the scope of paleoclimate research and discuss the current major challenges and perspectives. Two time periods serve as an example: the Holocene, including the Last Millennium, and the Last Glacial Maximum.

They believe regional climate models provide a clear benefit to answer fundamental paleoclimate research questions and may be key to advance a meaningful joint interpretation of climate model and proxy data.
