1. Host PAGES 2021 OSM/YSM

Held every four years, PAGES’ Open Science Meeting (OSM) and Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) provide an invaluable opportunity to bring the past global change community together from around the world to share, discuss, learn, and plan for the future.

Would you and your institution like to be an integral part of these premier events in the international paleoscience calendar? The call is now open to host the next meetings in 2021, preferably in the first half of the year.

The bidding process will take place in two stages with Expressions of Interest due 28 February 2019. PAGES' Scientific Steering Committee will then invite a shortlist of selected potential hosts to submit a full bid by early September 2019. All details: http://pages-osm.org/


2. Apply to be on our SSC

PAGES activities are overseen by an international Scientific Steering Committee (SSC). The SSC represents a broad spectrum of disciplines and nationalities, and includes scientists at different career stages. The continuing success of PAGES relies on the input of these people. PAGES is calling for applications from scientists to serve on its SSC from January 2020. We encourage applications from scientists in regions currently under-represented and welcome more female applicants. The application deadline is 14 February 2019: http://pastglobalchanges.org/about/structure/scientific-steering-committee/apply


3. Updated open-data procedures and webinar

PAGES recently announced its updated open-data procedures for PAGES working groups. The guidelines build on the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) data principles as endorsed by major publishers and science communities. Open data strengthens paleoscience! http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/2142-new-data-guidelines-18

PAGES also recently held a webinar covering data stewardship and the Linked Paleo Data framework (LiPD). Watch it on our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLVTQi-NVA4


4. PAGES and SCNAT funding

PAGES is pleased to announce that the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) will continue to support PAGES for the next four years. Our application for continued financial support was accepted at the beginning of November 2018. PAGES continues to actively seek additional international financial support for working group workshops, open workshops and other important activities.


5. IPCC SROCC Information Event for ECRs - deadline 30 Nov

Mountain Research Initiative, PAGES and the Swiss Polar Institute will conduct a half-day information and networking event on 18 December 2018 in Bern, Switzerland, for early-career researchers whose scientific background, research or expertise relates to climate change.

This is a chance to join the discussion, network, and learn from prominent climate scientists and experts participating in the IPCC assessment process. This event will provide background information on the assessment process, and perspectives from the scientific communities working on mountains, polar regions, and past climates on the challenges and prospects for research on climate change in these environments.

Registration is free but compulsory, due to seating capacity. Apply by 30 November: http://pastglobalchanges.org/calendar/upcoming/127-pages/1893-ipcc-info-ecr-bern-18


6. Awards announcements

SSC member Ed Brook will receive the Hans Oeschger Medal at the 2019 EGU General Assembly in Vienna, Austria, in April 2019. Congratulations also go to CVAS working group leader Shaun Lovejoy, who will receive the Lewis Fry Richardson Medal: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/2126-egu-awards-19

7. Major funding opportunity for ocean sustainability

Belmont Forum, Future Earth, and the Joint Programming Initiative Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans), announce a call for proposals which aim to bring together researchers and experts across the globe to innovate solutions that accelerate sustainable use of oceans and minimize the effects from global change. Thematic areas for this funding opportunity were developed through a global scoping process lead by Future Earth, followed by additional consultations co-led by Future Earth and the Belmont Forum.

This Collaborative Research Action (CRA) call aims to contribute to the overall challenge of ocean sustainability, with the UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 14 (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development) as the overall framework. Because the challenge is complex, there is a need for integrated, interdisciplinary and cross sectoral approaches, bringing together natural and social sciences, as well as policymakers, resource managers, industries, citizens and other societal partners.

A total of 14 funders from 12 countries have committed in total over 18 million dollars of cash and in-kind resources for this call: Brazil, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Japan, Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sweden, and USA. Through the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), researchers from Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Comoros and Madagascar are also eligible for this call.

The pre-registration system closes 31 January 2019. All details: http://futureearth.org/news/belmont-forum-future-earth-and-jpi-oceans-launch-major-funding-call-ocean-sustainability

PALEOLINK: Pre-registration and abstract submission close 2 December for the project's first workshop "A joint effort to bring together GCM, RCM and proxy communities" in Murcia, Spain, from 6-8 February 2019 (see point 14).

ii. C-PEAT: a. The steering committee members met in Texas in May to discuss the second phase of C-PEAT. A meeting report has been published in INQUA's Quaternary Perspectives newsletter (see point 10).
b. The group is working on a new community article focusing on "tipping points" in past, present, and future peatland carbon cycling. All peatland experts are invited to participate. Co-authorship is open to everyone who completes the expert assessment survey by 5 December: http://pastglobalchanges.org/download/docs/working_groups/c-peat/C-PEAT_ExpertAssessmentSurvey.docx. Contact Julie Loisel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Angela Gallego-Sala (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you have questions or comments.
c. Sakonvan (Moo) Chawchai, Jurek Muller, and Jerome Blewett were selected to represent C-PEAT within PAGES Early-Career Network (ECN). They will provide information on future events and opportunities for C-PEAT early-career members.
d. The AGU meeting will be held in Washington DC in December (see point 12). A Google sheet has been prepared for C-PEAT members to share information about their presentation time and day; please fill it out to help find each other in the maze! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1I9jUl4_gr35aFWMkckrNGGMlbQ7AO3y5w9F6j421sEY/edit?usp=sharing An informal restaurant/bar get-together day is also in the pipeline.
e. If you intend to participate at INQUA's next meeting, consider submitting an abstract by 9 January 2019 to C-PEAT's session "Peatland dynamics through time and their use as environmental archives" (see point 16).

iii. CVAS: The group will conduct the session "Scales, scaling and climate variability: Bridging theory, climate models and data" as well as two short courses at the EGU General Assembly in April 2019 (see point 13).

iv. DAPS: a. The group will conduct a poster session "New Perspectives on Past Climates: Progress in Proxy System Modeling, Reconstruction Algorithms, and Uncertainty Quantification" at the AGU Fall Meeting in December 2018 (see point 12).

First analyses of the results will start in January 2019, and data should be uploaded before then, if possible. Later submissions are also welcome. For the intercomparison, Northern Hemisphere (NH) local temperature pseudo-reconstructions for the period 1900–2000 will be assimilated. The data assimilation simulations will be compared using a common validation setup. The restriction to the NH and the period after 1900 CE ensures that the surface climate is known relatively well, which is crucial both for providing pseudo-reconstructions with a realistic climate signal and for validation.
