subject: Fwd: Re: simulations of past 500 years
together with Keith Briffa, I am coordinating a 3-yr EU project that has just begun, called "SOAP: Simulations, Observations & Palaeodata...". This brings together a number of European climate modelling and palaeoclimate groups with the purpose of using both models and proxy data to study the climate of the past 500 to 1000 years. There is a little more information on our project website:
I was talking with Tom Wigley about this project and he mentioned that some similar model simulations were being undertaken at NCAR and that I should contact you to find out some more information about them.
Would you be willing to give me some brief details about your project? I would be interested to have an overview of the model simulation(s) that you are carrying out, and what your plans are for proxy data comparisons.
