AGU Fall Meeting 2012

03.12 - 07.12.2012
San Francisco, USA


The AGU Fall Meeting is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, attracting nearly 20,000 Earth and space scientists, educators, students, and policy makers. This meeting showcases current scientific theory focused on discoveries that will benefit humanity and ensure a sustainable future for our planet.

As every year, there will be many sessions with relevance to PAGES, particularly those co-sponsored by Paleoceanography and Paleoclimate (PP).

However, specific sessions supported by PAGES or emerging from PAGES Working Groups activities include:

Climate of the Common Era (PP026)

Conveners: Kevin Anchukaitis, Jason Smerdon, Julien Emile-Geay & Edward Cook

Relevant to the PAGES 2k Network

This session aims to highlight recent work on all aspects of the climate of the last two thousand years (the Common Era), using new proxy records, reconstruction methodologies, process and forward proxy modeling, and paleoclimate model simulations. Contributions that combine several of the above areas are particularly welcome. We also encourage studies that promote the use of the PAGES (Past Global Changes) Regional 2k Network and/or the CMIP5/PMIP3 last millennium (LM) simulations, in order to enhance our understanding of past and future climate dynamics.
