Remote Observations of Ice Sheet Surface Temperature: Toward Multi-Proxy Reconstruction of Antarctic Climate Variability
Entry ID: Ant_T_Recon

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This project will develop spatially extended and statistically reliable
estimates of Antarctic surface temperature variations over the past several
centuries, using a multi-proxy calibration/verification approach that combines
the climate signal in ice core, satellite remote sensing, and weather station
data. Antarctica has been problematic from the point of view of ... View entire text
