NW Pacific Ocean Field Trip, 2001.
The Ocean2k group attempts to reconstruct and analyze the sea surface conditions and marine climate of the last two millennia. Paleoceanographic evidence will be compiled from high-resolution archives, mostly sedimentary cores and corals.
The group's overall objectives, as for all of the 2k regional groups, will be data compilation, spatial and temporal synopsis, comparison with models, and synthesis.
Group members hold virtual meetings regularly.
