Patterns of climate variability in the north atlantic

Objective

The project intends to significantly extend observations of decadal to century scale climate variability of the North Atlantic Ocean and its impact on climate change in Europe beyond the instrumental period, which at best only covers the last 1-2 centuries. It will provide critical data for testing/validating climate models over time scales of high importance for climate prediction. The approach has a comprehensive geographical coverage, very high temporal and significant spatial resolution, and will identify the degree to which the oceanic anomaly patterns associated with the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) reflect the main long term mode of variability of North Atlantic climates. This will be done by the use of state of the art palaeo-observation methods, building upon a unique European world-class network of collaborating laboratories.
