Working Groups

PAGES science structure is divided into foci and cross-cutting themes. Each of the four foci is further divided into a number of themes, the goals of which are addressed by Working Groups (WG) that target specific aspects of the scientific scope with activities and programs.

Current Working Groups

Climate Forcings (Focus 1)

- C-PEAT (Carbon in Peat on EArth through Time)
- DICE (Dust Impact on Climate and Environment)
- GPWG (Global Paleofire Working Group)
- PALSEA2 (PALeo constraints on SEA level rise 2)
- SIP (Sea Ice Proxies)
- Solar Forcing 

Regional Climate Dynamics (Focus 2)

The 2k Network

   - Africa2k (African climate of the last 2 millennia)
   - Antarctica2k (Antarctic climate of the last 2 millennia)
   - Arctic2k (Arctic climate of the last 2 millennia)
   - Asia2k (Asian climate of the last 2 millennia)
   - Aus2k (Australasian climate of the last 2 millennia)
   - Euro-Med2k (Climate of Europe and the Mediterranean of the last 2 millennia)
   - LOTRED-SA (Long-Term Climate Reconstruction and Dynamics of South America)
   - NAmerica2k (North American climate of the last 2 millennia)
   - Ocean2k (Marine climate of the last 2 millennia)

Global Earth-System Dynamics (Focus 3)

- Global Monsoon
- OC3 (Ocean Circulation and Carbon Cycling)
- PIGS (Past Interglacials)

Human-Climate-Ecosystem Interactions (Focus 4)

- Aquatic Transitions
- Biodiversity
- GloSS (Global Soil and Sediment transfers in the Anthropocene)
- LandCover6k
- Regional Integration

Chronology (Cross Cutting Theme 1)

- VWG (Varves Working Group)

Proxy Development, Validation and Calibration (Cross Cutting Theme 2)

- SIP (Sea Ice Proxies)

Propose a new PAGES Working Group

If you would like to propose a new PAGES Working Group, please refer to the Working Group guidelines and complete the application form.

You may also contact Thorsten Kiefer or a member of the PAGES Scientific Steering Committee to discuss your proposal. Proposals should be submitted by 12 June 2015 for consideration at the next EXCOM meeting.

Note: PAGES considers supporting scoping workshops intended to develop new working groups, under the Open Call category.
