Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Climate Field Reconstruction (CFR) method and the "compsite-plus-scale" (CPS) method were tested using a simulation of the climate of the past millenium (AD 850-1999) employing the NCAR Climate System Model 1.4 coupled ocean-atmosphere model driven by estimated long-term natural and anthropogenic radiative forcing histories. It was found that both methods are likely to provide a faithful estimate of actual long-term hemispheric temperature histories, within estimated uncertainties.
