PAGES Working Group Databases

Databases and metadatabases compiled by PAGES Working Groups. Some of the datasets are freely accessible, others may be provided on request by the corresponding contributor.

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 reconstructions. They currently fall into two categories:

1) Regional collections of proxy datasets covering the last 2000 years
2) Topical metadatabases

Regional metadatabases

> Arctic2k

> Africa2k

> Aus2k (Australasia)

> LOTRED-SA (South America)

Topical metadatabases

> PIGS (records covering Past Interglacials)

> Varves

> Ocean2k
