The most important sources of information on past climate change are derived from paleoclimatic records such as marine sediments, terrestrial archives and polar ice cores, as well as from climate models. These archives are highly complementary, giving a wealth of precious quantitative information on the nature and causes of climate variability and change.

To critically look at climate variability during past interglacials (IGs), approx. 100 scientists from five continents gathered at the Obergurgl University Centre, Austria for this ESF-FWF Conference in partnership with the University of Innsbruck.
