PAGES Focus 4 leader, John Dearing, stresses the importance of learning from the past to ascertain the complexity of environment management decisions for the IGBP newsletter, Global Change (Issue 77).
Planet Under Pressure Conference (26-29 March 2012, London).
Don't miss PAGES sessions on learning from past climate change, sea-level rise and ice sheets, human-environment interactions and adding value to earth-system science.
The PAGES Focus 4 - PHAROS (Past Human-Climate - Ecosystem Interactions) workshop "Sediment and carbon fluxes under human impact and climate change" (July 28-30 2011, Bern, Switzerland) is organized by the LUCIFS (Land Use and Climate Impacts on Fluvial Systems) Working Group. The workshop provides a platform to discuss research results and ideas on sediment and associated carbon fluxes in all terrestrial environments.

As every year, there will be sessions with relevance to PAGES science and Working Groups.
Sessions with PAGES co-sponsoring or emerging from PAGES activities include those addressing the climate of the last deglaciation, the Holocene, past two millennia, as well as sea level change.
Abstract submission closes on 4 Aug 2011.
The PAGES-endorsed Paleoclimate Modeling Intercomparison Project 3 (PMIP3) has recently published its workshop report titled "Comparing Structurally Different Climate Models in a Paleoenvironmental Context" in Eos. The workshop was held in 5-10 Dec 2010 in Kyoto, Japan.
The Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) is inviting proposals under two separate programmes, the Annual Regional Call for Research Proposals (ARCP) Programme and the Scientific Capacity Building/Enhancement for Sustainable Development in Developing Countries (CAPaBLE) Programme, for funding from April 2012.
The deadline for applying for PAGES meeting support is 5 March 2012.
