Session Title: Palaeoclimate records and atmospheric circulation patterns
Convenors: Armand Hernández (firstname.lastname@example.org), Celia Martin-Puertas (email@example.com) and Laia Comas Bru (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Description of Session: This session aims to provide new insights into how proxy-based signals may be controlled by large-scale atmospheric circulation modes associated with past climate changes. Despite the significant advances in proxy-based reconstructions and climate model estimates, issues such as spatio-temporal discrepancies in the proxy signals and good reproducibility of these climate reconstructions by models remain unclear. Resolving these issues is crucial to assessing the ability of specific proxy data to capture past climates and to provide tests for ocean-atmosphere general circulation models. We welcome studies of past atmospheric climate patterns during the Holocene over a range of timescales (annual to centennial), captured by any climate proxy type (marine and/or terrestrial). We encourage contributions that integrate both climate modelling and field/proxy data as a way to foster model-data comparison.
