Climate variations in South America over the last 2000 years
Climate variations in South America over the last 2000 years
Editor(s): M. H. Masiokas, D. Christie, M. Grosjean, A. Rivera, R. Villalba, and T. Kiefer
This Special Issue originates from the PAGES initiative \"Long-Term climate Reconstruction and Dynamics of southern South America: A collaborative, high-resolution multi-proxy approach\" (LOTRED-SA). The Special Issue collates original research papers and reviews on paleoclimatic studies in southern South America over the past few millennia. Papers address the potential of different proxies for paleoclimatic reconstruction, present new datasets, and analyze regional features of model simulations. The topics covered complement those already presented in a first LOTRED-SA Special Issue published in the journal Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology (Villalba et al., 2009).
