PAGES working group databases

Databases and metadatabases compiled by PAGES Working Groups. We list here only larger data-compilation efforts. Please remember to properly acknowledge all data that you use from others, coming either from models or reconstructions. You may direct any queries or relevant links for inclusion to the Science Officer.

The metadatabases provide meta-information collected by PAGES Working Groups of proxy sites of different natural and human archives that might be suitable for climate and environmental reconstructions. The PAGES metadatabases are intended as tools for working group activities, rather than final archives or end-user resources.
