Abstract. This work reports on the relationship between the Pacific Ocean sea surface temperature variability and precipitation over South America in the IPSL coupled model simulations of the present and the 6 kyr Before Present (Mid-Holocene) climate. The model results suggests that the control exerted by ENSO on precipitation in South America was less frequent in the Mid-Holocene compared to the present climate and that the spatial distribution of the ENSO influence is considerably different in the two periods.
