Eds: Brigham-Grette J, Kull C & Kiefer T

PAGES news, vol. 14(2), 1-44, 2006


The short articles presented in this issue of PAGES news were volunteered primarily by researchers funded by the US NSF's Earth System History (ESH) program. They represent a small cross-section of the range of science address by the cross-disciplinary ESH initiative.
