21 (1): Investigating Past Interglacials: An Integrative Approach

Eds: Dahl-Jensen D, Capron E, Stone E, von Gunten L & Kiefer T

PAGES news, vol. 21(1), 1-44, 2013


Studying past interglacial climates provides unique insights on how natural climate changes interact with anthropogenic global warming. This PAGES newsletter highlights Past4Future project research, which aims at improving our understanding of the climate during the last two interglacials by combining paleoclimatic records with climate model simulations.
