CL Climate: Past, Present & Future

The 2021 Virtual Outstanding Student and PhD candidate Presentation (vOSPP) Award is awarded to Cameron de Wet for the poster/PICO entitled:

North American rainfall patterns during past warm states: A proxy network-model comparison for the Last Interglacial and the mid-Holocene (de Wet, C.; Oster, J.; Ibarra, D.; Belanger, B.)

Cameron de Wet is a PhD candidate in the Earth and Environmental Science Department at Vanderbilt University working with Dr. Jessica Oster. He uses varied approaches, from climate model output to geochemical signatures in cave mineral deposits, to investigate paleo-rainfall patterns across North America, with an eye toward how water availability may change in the future. At EGU 2021 Cameron presented compilations of North American proxy records that provide a snapshot of rainfall patterns during the mid-Holocene and Last Interglacial and compared these records with rainfall patterns produced by 16 different PMIP4 models.
