Climate of the Past


This special issue provides a cross-section of the research presented at the PAGES Young Scientists Meeting and addresses the processes of past climatic and environmental change, as well as the methodologies required to study them. All 14 first authors and the first six of the guest editors are early-career researchers who attended the meeting held on 11–12 February 2013 in Goa, India.

Hydrographic changes in the Agulhas Recirculation Region during the late Quaternary
D.K. Naik, R. Saraswat, N. Khare, A.C. Pandey and R. Nigam

Late Glacial–Holocene climatic transition record at the Argentinian Andean piedmont between 33 and 34° S
A.E. Mehl and M.A. Zárate

Blue intensity and density from northern Fennoscandian tree rings, exploring the potential to improve summer temperature reconstructions with earlywood information
J.A. Björklund, B.E. Gunnarson, K. Seftigen, J. Esper and H.W. Linderholm
