In the framework of the European Science Foundation (ESF) PolarCLIMATE program (, HOLOCLIP aims to bring together the ice core, marine sediment core and modeling communities to study the processes linking the different components of the climate system and linking the climatic response to the external forcing over the Holocene. Key areas of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and their marine surroundings have been selected.

LOCEAN (Laboratoire d’Océanographie et du Climat: Expérimentation et Approches Numériques) at University Pierre and Marie Curie, hosted the HOLOCLIP kick-off meeting. Nineteen scientists from the ice core, sediment core and climate modeling communities gathered to discuss available data, plan activities and coordinate the scientific teams for the next year.

Each project partner presented their main contribution to HOLOCLIP to provide an overview of the available data and the plans for new data to be obtained. Climate modelers presented the model (LOVECLIM) that will be used to perform transient and snapshot simulations.
