Refined knowledge and understanding of the full range of past hydroclimatic variability over EM, NA, and other parts of the Mediterranean Basin is critical for improved understanding of factors driving that variability and handling of low-frequency climate variability by GCMs. Our research is the first effort at assembling and interpreting networks of tree-ring chronologies for this purpose in the region. The synthesis effort will exploit the rich resource of recently-developed tree-ring data for improved estimates of potential near-term future hydroclimatic variability and explore novel methods of time series analysis to place current and future hydroclimatic variability in a long-term context.
