Investigation of extreme states in Earth’s global hydrological cycle

One of the major hypotheses related with global warming is the intensification of global hydrological cycle. During Earth’s past there have been periods that global climate was dramatically different than the one we experience in Holocene. This extreme states propagated in different time scales with some times abrupt transitions, which still leaves unanswered questions about the links between temperature and water in our planet. The successful applicant will use paleoclimatic reconstructions in order to investigate and simulate the range of hydrological cycle natural variability using process-based and stochastic models.
