Stefan Grab and co-conveners have organized a session on historical climatology at this year’s EGU general assembly. This session seeks papers that: produce historical climate chronologies; provide insights into past climatic periods or specific weather events; look closely at the environmental and human consequences to past climate and weather; share people’s experiences and perceptions of past climate, weather events and climate change; and reflect on lessons learned (coping and adaptation) from past climate and weather events. The conveners are open to studies from across the globe but are particularly interested in papers about Asia and the Middle East. The deadline for abstract submission is January 11, 2017.
