New paper in 2k special issue

2k linderholm 18Hans Linderholm et al. summarise the current understanding of Arctic hydroclimate during the past 2000 years in a new contribution to the PAGES 2k Network special issue of Climate of the Past.

Published yesterday, the paper, titled "Arctic hydroclimate variability during the last 2000 years: current understanding and research challenges", reviews the main natural archives and proxies used to infer past hydroclimate variations in this remote region and outlines the difficulty of disentangling the moisture from the temperature signal in these records.

It also shows the potential for providing a high-resolution hydroclimate reconstruction for the Arctic and a comparison with last-millennium simulations from fully coupled climate models. Read the paper here.
