 A heat-conduction forward model driven by ground surface temperature from three 1000-year climate simulations with the state-of-the-art ECHO-g model has been used to simulate underground temperature perturbation profiles. An inversion approach has been applied to reconstruct ground surface temperature histories from the simulated profiles and to compare them with the climate model temperatures. Results support the skill of borehole inversion methods to retrieve long-term temperature trends, and the robustness of using the present-day borehole network for reconstructing SAT variations.
