The Hows and Whys of Historical Climate Reconstruction: Examples for Africa

4:00pm EST


Fayerweather Hall, Room 513 1180 Amsterdam Avenue New York, NY 10027

Historical climatology can dramatically extend the climate record in many parts of the world. That has definitely been the case for Africa, where the instrumental record of many countries barely goes back to the early twentieth century. This talk will focus on five aspects of the historical climatology of Africa: information sources, quantification of non-instrumental data, development of a two-century semi-quantitative data set for the whole continent, and two unusual periods with the nineteenth century.
