Short summary
Climate indices of the past are often reconstructed using proxy information from various locations and it is assumed that the relationship between the two does not change over time. As this assumption has been recently questioned, we use a climate model to examine the effect of these changing relationships on the skill of El Nino-Southern Oscillation variance reconstructions. Our study finds that these changes reduce reconstruction skill, while also showing how this impact can be mitigated.
