Last Millennium Reanalysis

Paleoclimate reanalysis workshop Oct. 2-3, Boulder, CO
The Last Millennium Reanalysis team invites your participation in its third workshop, to be held Oct 2-3 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (Mesa Lab) in Boulder, CO. Paleoclimate data assimilation is emerging as a novel tool to understand low-frequency climate dynamics, blending multi-proxy paleoclimate observations with numerical simulations of Earth’s climate.  Previous workshops have investigated the use of proxy system modeling (2015) and modeling stable water isotopes in the climate system (2016). This workshop will share the project’s latest reconstructions and provide a forum to discuss relevant findings on the climate of the Common Era.  The event will focus on validating the approach against complementary datasets and investigations of low-frequency climate dynamics made possible by this framework. The meeting will be followed by a 1-day hackathon on October 4 to provide graduate students and early-career scientists with hands-on training to use the newly available data and code to perform experiments, manipulate the output, and analyze results..  Limited travel support is available for both events, with priority given to junior participants.  Registration and information are available at  Address questions to Loretta Quinn at UCAR (  Early registration for the meeting and the preferred meeting Hotel, the Best Western Plus Boulder Inn, is encouraged.
We look forward to seeing you in Boulder,
-The LMR team (David Anderson, Julien Emil-Geay, Greg Hakim, and Eric Steig)
