Eds: Masiokas MH, Christie D, Grosjean M, Rivera A, Villalba R & Kiefer T

Climate of the Past, 2012

This special issue originates from the 2nd symposium held in Chile in October 2010 of the PAGES initiative: Long-term climate reconstruction and dynamics of southern South America: A collaborative, high-resolution multi-proxy approach (a.k.a. LOTRED-South America).

This special issue collates original research papers and reviews on paleoclimatic studies in southern South America over the past few millennia. Papers address the potential of different proxies for paleoclimatic reconstruction, present new datasets, and analyze regional features of model simulations. The topics covered complement those already presented in a first LOTRED-SA Special Issue published in the journal Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology (Villalba et al., 2009).
