Name: Hans Wilhelm Linderholm


Work Address: Department of Earth Sciences, University of Gothenburg, SE-405 30 GÖTEBORG, Sweden


Homepage: http://www.gvc.gu.se/Personal/Personal/LinderholmHans/ 


Born: 19 May 1968


Title: Professor


Marital Status: Married, three children (born 2003, 2006 and 2011)


Nationality: Swedish




Main research profile


My research is focused on regional climate variability in Europe and Asia from the past (last 2000 years) to the future (next 100 years), the effect of climate change on terrestrial and marine ecosystems, and the role of the large-scale circulation in the oceans and atmosphere on climate variability in these regions. Using high-resolution proxies, mainly tree rings, I reconstruct past climate changes (e.g. temperatures, drought and precipitation, and the atmospheric circulation) on different temporal and spatial scales. My work has mainly been conducted in North Europe and China, but I have also projects in Canada and North Africa. I also do research on contemporary climate change, presently directed towards better understanding the impacts (and feedbacks) of large-scale circulation change (e.g. the NAO and the Asian Monsoon) on climate in the future, but also on glacier variability in northern Scandinavia, changes in the growing season and the impact of climate change on marine ecosystems.




I’m a leader of the Regional Climate Group (RCG http://rcg.gvc.gu.se), University of Gothenburg. RCG has a unique profile within the Swedish climate research community, and an international reputation in the field of statistical climate analysis and paleoclimatology. RCG represents a successful research environment, with a high scientific production rate, good connections with international and national research communities, and modern climate research tools and GIS competences. Moreover, I’m Director of the Göteborg University Laboratory for Dendrochronology (GULD, http://www.gvc.gu.se/Forskning/klimat/paleoklimat/GULD/), one of the leading dendrochronological laboratories in northern Europe, as well as co-director of the Sino-Swedish Tree-Ring Research Centre (SISTRR) (www.sistrr.org), a cooperative effort between the Institute of Earth Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in Xian, China and the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Gothenburg, Sweden launched in 2008. The aim of SISTRR is to investigate tree-ring related research questions in Northern Europe and China, especially regarding climate teleconnections between the two regions.
