A paleoclimate perspective on large-scale climate dynamics

Two studies will be presented in which tree-ring data are used to reconstruct long-term variability in (1) jet stream position and (2) the extent of the Northern Hemisphere tropical belt. The discussion will focus on what these reconstructions tell us about past variability in these climate patterns, how they are linked to ecosystem and human history, and why this information is important for future climate research.
