High resolution multiproxy paleoclimatology of the late Holocene, with special emphasis on tropical processes, hydrometeorological variations, and global climate change. Forward modeling of the processes by which environmental forcing is represented in observations collected from paleoclimatic archives. Analysis of historical climate data sets. Climate field reconstruction from sparse observational networks. Analysis and modeling of paleo-reconstruction uncertainties. Synthesis of paleoclimate observations and simulations.
