Multi-centennial climate variability in the alps based on instrumental data, model simulations and proxy data

Objective

ALP-IMP is an integrated research attempt on the unique Alpine instrumental and proxy data potential. It will extend the instrumental period in terms of length and spatial density, introduce new climate elements under strict quality requirements in terms of homogeneity and combine them with the typical Alpine proxy information from tree-ring records, isotopic ice core records and glacier variability records to a consistent picture of at least 1000 years of natural climate variability in the Alpine realm. High resolution regional climate modelling combined with sophisticated statistical analyses is going to study meson-scale internal climate variability patterns within the region as well as the Alpine climate as a whole versus European to global scale variability and change.
