The project will use exactly dated tree ring records to reconstruct historical droughts in the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe. This will produce an "Old World Atlas" which can be combined with the North American Drought Atlas and the Monsoon Asia Drought Atlas.
OUTCOMES: One conference proceeding published.
Back to the Future: Innovative tree ring suite analysis to reconstruct paleo climate and stream flows for improved urban water planning under climate change
CMG Research: Reconstructing Climate from Tree Ring Data
CNH: Pluvials, Droughts, Energetics and the Mongol Empire
Collaborative Research: Calibrating Southeast Asian Proxies Speleothems and Tree Rings
