Background Using high-resolution Greenland ice cores and related proxies from mid- latitudes (such as oxygen isotopes in tree rings, lake sediments, and corals), as well as (paleo)reanalysis data, observations, and future projections based on model runs specially designed to include freshwater hosing to simulate potential strong melt events in Greenland, this PhD project aims to investigate the teleconnections between Greenland ice cores and mid- latitude weather extremes. It also aims to explore how the relationship between Greenland's climate and extreme weather events over Europe is evolving. The project will establish a long-term perspective on recent changes in Greenland's climate and associated extremes over Europe. Main goals:
