2k Network data


Phase 2 - Global temperature database

During Phase 2 of the PAGES 2k project, the regional temperature paleo-record database build up for the Phase 1 continental-scale reconstructions (see below) was updated.

The new, global database gathers 692 records from 648 locations, with data sources covering all continents and oceans. Data were selected and vetted in a collaborative manner by members of the consortium, according to a consistent and transparent set of criteria.

This database was published in the open access journal Scientific Data (PAGES2k Consortium 2017). Access the paper and additional information here. A map showing key metadata and with direct links to the archived data is available here.
