Data sites from studies housed at (or linked by) NOAA-Paleoclimatology relevant to the PAGES Arctic 2K regional reconstruction.


The PAGES Arctic2k network needs your input!

Precipitation/humidity records are still severely underrepresented in the Arctic2k database. While more substantial than for precipitation, some regions, such as the Russian or Canadian Arctic still yield only very few records.

The published record should fulfill the following criteria to be included in the database:

1. Demonstrated plausible mechanistic relation to climate, but not necessarily quantitative

2. At least one numerical age per 500-year interval  (a qualitative age-depth model with error bands of <100 years will be considered)

3. At least one analysis every 200 years

4. Must span at least 500 years during the past 2k

5. Must be published in a peer-reviewed publication

6. Must be made available through the PAGES2k database at NOAA when being used for a published result in the framework of PAGES2k

If you are aware of records that fulfill these criteria, please contact the data managers (Dmitri Divine: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.; Johannes Werner: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to submit your data to the Arctic2k database. The data managers will instruct you on how to submit your record in the best format. All new data will first be used internally by the PAGES 2k Network and be archived publicly once a product is published.
