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)

- GPWG (Global Paleofire Working Group)
- PALSEA2 (PALeo constraints on SEA level rise 2)
- Solar Forcing 
- SIP (Sea Ice Proxies) 

Regional Climate Dynamics (Focus 2)

- CLIVAR/PAGES Intersection
- SynTraCE-21 (Synthesis of Transient Climate Evolution of the last 21-kyr) (and Focus 3)

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)

- ADOM (Atmospheric Dust during the last glacial cycle: Observations and Modeling)
- Global Monsoon
- PIGS (Past Interglacials)
- NICOPP (Nitrogen Cycle in the Ocean, Past and Present)
- SynTraCE-21 (Synthesis of Transient Climate Evolution of the last 21-kyr) (and Focus 2)

Human-Climate-Ecosystem Interactions (Focus 4)

- Land Use and Cover
- Biodiversity
- Water
- Soil and Sediment
- Regional Integration

Chronology (Cross Cutting Theme 1)

- VWG (Varves Working Group)

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