Information - CL003 Mediterranean Climate Variability
This session includes presentations on climate variability, trends and climate change at different time and space scales within the Mediterranean area and the connections to the globe (Enso, Monsoons, NAO etc). Particularly welcome are presentations analysing the coupled atmosphere-ocean system and the interactions between atmospheric and oceanic variability. Particular importance will be given this year to 1) reconstructions of past Mediterranean Climate based on instrumental data, natural and documentary proxies; 2) projections of climate change following future emission scenarios. Further themes included in this session are: model simulations focused on the Mediterranean region, especially ocean/atmosphere coupled simulations; analysis of the connections between sea level pressure, precipitation and temperature in the Mediterranean and the climate of other regions (e.g. Sahel); the role of the Mediterranean sea as source of moisture and heat reservoir for the coastal regions around it; identification of trends of sea level, temperature and salinity; the role of the Mediterranean outflow in affecting the global meridional circulation.
