About Francesco Muschitiello

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University. My expertise lies in the use of isotopic tracers in precipitation as proxies for past changes in atmospheric circulation and paleohydrological shifts. I am also interested in comparing paleoclimatic information to climate model output in order to test the consistency of proxy and model data sets.

What can paleoclimate archives tell us about the timing of events during rapid climate shifts?

Our ability to predict future climate changes relies heavily on the goodness of physical climate models to capture short-term, regional to local expressions of atmospheric circulation dynamics. This diagnostic ability is aided by knowledge on paleoclimate scenarios. Indeed, we can … Continue reading
