23 (1): Glacial Terminations and Interglacials

Eds: Capron E, Roche DM, Vallelonga P, Goodwin L & Kiefer T

Past Global Changes Magazine, vol. 23(1), 1-40, 2015


Number of pages: 40

This issue of PAGES Magazine highlights the cross-disciplinary work of the Past4Future project, which ended in late 2014. The project aimed to combine proxy data with climate model simulations to investigate past abrupt climate changes during warm climate periods, specifically the last two interglacials, and evaluate the risk of abrupt changes in the future. This issue also details the launch of four new PAGES working groups.
