Collaborative Research: Past and Future Drought Variability in the Mediterranean Basin
DESCRIPTION: The project will conduct a statistical intercomparison of reconstructed spatiotemporal drought variability over the Mediterranean basin using climate model simulations of the last millennium from the PMIP3 archive as well as making simulations based on reconstructed sea surface temperatures. These will allow inferences about large-scale controls on regional patterns of drought pluvials to me made.
