2. New "Find data" tab on PAGES website

PAGES recently updated the main menu items on the website. If you are searching for data, a tab has been added to the top search bar: http://pastglobalchanges.org/data/databases

Please check your working group data is present. If we are missing your data, please email PAGES' Science Officer Sarah Eggleston: http://pastglobalchanges.org/about/structure/international-project-office

The main menu bar now contains News; Calendar; About; Science; Products; Find data; Get Involved; People Database; Early-Career Network; and Topical Science Meeting.

Items previously found on the Initiatives tab have now been merged with Science to make way for the Find data tab. You may need to resave old bookmarks, especially for working groups.


3. Data Stewardship updates

i. A reminder that PAGES and NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information - Center for Weather and Climate, World Data Service for Paleoclimatology (WDS-Paleo) recently signed a scientific agreement. The interrelated nature of PAGES and WDS-Paleo dates back to our beginnings in 1993, and in May 2019 a formal agreement was reached: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/2273-pages-noaa-wds-paleo-may-19

ii. Read about PAGES' long-standing commitment to open paleodata: http://pastglobalchanges.org/products/pages-magazine/12706

iii. PAGES 2k Network contributor Julien Emile-Geay recently wrote an opinion piece on the LinkedEarth website discussing the beginnings of a reporting standard called PaCTS. Access "Paleoclimate data standards: a community pact, and its future" here: http://linked.earth/paleoclimate-data-standards-a-community-pact-and-its-future/


4. IPCC AR6 updates

i. Expert review of AR6 WGI: Reminder! If you have already registered to be a reviewer (deadline was 16 June), then the first order draft (FOD) of the IPCC Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report is open for expert review until 23 June. To facilitate your review of paleoclimate information in the FOD, PAGES and its Early-Career Network (ECN) have assembled a table listing the paleo contents from across the report. The table of contents will help you locate text and evaluate possible inconsistencies, gaps and overlaps across the chapters. It also highlights sections that contain assessment statements using IPCC controlled vocabulary. All details: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/2274-ipcc-ar6-wg1-fod-may-19

ii. Job opportunity: Working Group I of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is recruiting the Head of Science in the Technical Support Unit (IPCC WGI) for the IPCC Working Group I Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). The position is located at the University of Paris-Saclay (France). Applications close 5 July. All details: http://pastglobalchanges.org/my-pages/paleo-jobs/other/2291-head-science-ipcc-ar6-wg1-france-19

iii. Nominations of experts for the IPCC AR6 Synthesis Report Scoping Meeting: The Scoping Meeting of the IPCC Sixth Assessment Synthesis Report will be held in Singapore on 21-23 October 2019, to develop the draft outline. The Synthesis Report will synthesize and integrate materials contained within the Assessment Reports and Special Reports of the Sixth Assessment cycle and should be written in a non-technical style suitable for policymakers and address a broad range of policy-relevant but policy-neutral questions approved by the Panel. Nominations for participation are solicited from IPCC National Focal Points, observer organizations and Bureau members.

7. PAGES Early-Career Network updates

i. ECN at INQUA: A splinter meeting will be held on 31 July at the 20th INQUA Congress in Dublin, Ireland. See point 1 or 8 for all details.

ii. ECN at ICP13: A side meeting will be held during the 13th International Conference on Paleoceanography in Sydney, Australia, on 4 September 2019, from 13:30-14:30. Open to all: http://icp13.com.au/pre-and-post-workshops.php

iii. ECN leaders are starting an online writing support group and would like to know who's interested in joining. The idea is to host regular meetings where everybody works on a piece of writing (whatever it is, be it a thesis, manuscript, grant application, or something else entirely) in a structured way - without distractions and with each other's moral support. If you feel like the writing process can be isolating, if you find it difficult to dedicate time to your writing or stay focused, or if you simply like the company of people who are in a very similar situation as you, then this might be just the thing for you. Contact ECN Steering Committee member Stella Alexandroff if you'd like to join, and then the format will be discussed in more detail. Also please let Stella know your time zone: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

iv. The Early Pages Blog - two new posts:
a. Science has many facets - one of them resembles an action-packed adventure trip: Aditi Dave gives us some insight into fieldwork in the vast and beautiful landscapes of Tajikistan to obtain an 800,000 record of past climate: http://pastglobalchanges.org/products/multimedia/12858-track-clim-chg-tajik-ecn-blog-19
b. Deciding who is going to be a co-author on your paper can be a daunting task. However, as Carin Andersson Dahl outlines in her post, there are simple rules you can follow to avoid confusion and create a transparent and fair process: http://pastglobalchanges.org/products/multimedia/12861-publications-ethics-author-issues-ecn-blog
If you want to share your views and experiences or make your work visible to the wider community, email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or contact leaders via Twitter (@TheEarlyPages).

The deadline for candidate nominations for the policy tools and methodologies; scenarios and models; capacity-building; knowledge and data; indigenous and local knowledge task forces has been extended to 24 June with the confirmation of nominations deadline by Governments and organizations extended to 8 July. To be nominated through Future Earth, put the following: "Type of nominating body: Organisation"; "Name of organisation: Future Earth"; "Job title: Science Officer"; "First name: Hannah"; "Last name: Moersberger"; "Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.". Your nomination will then be forwarded to Future Earth. Access the nomination form here: https://www.ipbes.net/application-form-task-forces. Email Hannah Moersberger if you have any questions.

ii. World Biodiversity Forum 2020: The World Biodiversity Forum will be held from 23-28 February 2020 in Davos, Switzerland. The deadline for calls for session proposals and workshop proposals is 21 July. All details: https://www.worldbiodiversityforum.org/index.html

iii. Future Earth invites you to contribute to research priorities and recommendations on human migration and global change, as input to a Belmont Forum scoping process: Future Earth and the Belmont Forum have recently developed a preliminary synthesis document on research priorities for Human Migration and Global Change. The white paper outlines potential topics and priorities for research for transdisciplinary, multinational teams. Additionally, Future Earth seeks input on approaches to be encouraged and avoided in the design of a funding call on this topic, as well as policy and action impacts, and key references.

Future Earth now invites the wider community to review the synthesis document and give feedback in order to see if there are any missing pieces that have not yet been addressed. Feedback, from both individuals and institutions, will be incorporated into a final version of the document that will then serve as input to a Belmont Forum scoping process for a future Collaborative Research Action. The consultation will be open until 14 August 2019. If you have any questions regarding this consultation, including any technical problems, please contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
