This joint workshop brings together the PAGES 2k project CLIVASH2k
and the SCAR research programme AntClim21.
 
CLIVASH2k aims to improve our understanding of large scale modes of climate variability and the mechanisms and drivers of climate change in Antarctica, the sub-Antarctic and the wider Southern Hemisphere during the past 2000 years. 
 
AntClim21 is a SCAR research programme which aims to deliver improved regional predictions of key elements of the Antarctic atmosphere, ocean and cryosphere for the next 20 to 200 years and to understand the responses of the physical and biological systems to natural and anthropogenic forcing factors.
 
These two groups are coming together for a 2-day workshop investigating climate variability in Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere over the past 2000 years.
 
The workshop goals      
The workshop is open to all.  We want to engage a broad spectrum of the scientific community, including paleoclimate both data gathers (such as ice cores, lake sediments, marine records, and terrestrial records), climatologists and climate modellers.
 
We especially encourage those who wish to actively contribute to the CLIVASH2k and AntClim21 project goals, including contribution to synthesis products and publications. The workshop will be informative but be prepared to get involved!
 
Our aim is to review and evaluate our current understanding of the drivers of Southern Hemisphere climate variability, through short presentations, posters and discussion sessions.
