About Mauricio Fuentes

I Just started my Phd studentship at GULD. My work is linked to two of the national strategy projects: “Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate – BECC” and “ModElling the Regional and Global Earth system (MERGE)”. I am also taking part of the Regional Climate Group. Although my headquarters are based at GULD, a great deal of my project is going to be developed in southern South America. There I will work with the Foundation CEQUA (Pta. Arenas, Chile) and the Dendrochronology Laboratory at Universidad Austral (Valdivia, Chile). I am developing and analyzing a network of tree ring chronologies in Scandinavia, and southern South America. From these chronologies I will develop climate reconstructions (precipitation, temperature and atmospheric pressure) which in turn I will use to assess similarities on climate processes and circulation patterns in both hemispheres. These similarities may give evidence of teleconnections between climate systems, leading to a better understanding of the atmospheric circulation patterns. All things are connected, you know?
