1. PAGES 3rd YSM deadlines 1 October

Applications, abstract submissions and financial support requests for PAGES 3rd Young Scientists Meeting (Morillo de Tou, Spain, 7-9 May 2017) are all due 1 October 2016.

The YSM is open on a competitive basis to approximately 80 outstanding early-career researchers who meet the following criteria:
1. Age: Usually under 35 years
2. Career status: - PhD Students: Usually in the latter stages of their degree- Post-PhD: Usually within five years of completing their degree
3. Scientific scope: Paleoscientists (data-based or modelers) or global change scientists with a strong, proven interest in paleoscience.

Participants will be selected on the basis of the quality of the application and suitability. All details can be found at: http://www.pages-osm.org/ysm


2. Propose a new PAGES working group by 10 October

Does your heart pound for paleoscience? Know others who feel the same? Contact a member of PAGES Scientific Steering Committee by 26 September to advise them of your plans before submitting a new PAGES working group proposal by 10 October. More at: http://pastglobalchanges.org/ini/wg/new-wg-proposal


3. Apply for workshop/meeting support by 10 October

4. New Past Global Changes Magazine

The latest Past Global Changes Magazine is now available to read online. Edited by Chris Turney, Chris Fogwill, Tim Lenton, Richard Jones and Lucien von Gunten, "Tipping Points" highlights how abrupt shifts can lead to irreversible changes in environmental and human systems, with important implications for reducing the uncertainty of future projections. Included are 52 pages of scientific highlights, program news and workshop reports. http://www.pastglobalchanges.org/products/pages-magazine/7018-24-1-tipping-points

11. Erle Ellis, PAGES' guest scientist, seeks volunteers

Long-time PAGES collaborator Erle Ellis is in Bern to work with the LandCover6k working group (http://pastglobalchanges.org/ini/wg/landcover6k/intro) and GLP (http://globallandproject.org) on his GLOBE project (http://ecotope.org/projects/globe/).

GLOBE currently supports real-time global geospatial analysis. The plan is to build a prototype for real-time geo-temporal analysis and visualization over the past 50,000 years. Ellis aims to show how both can connect in deep time, using online interactive tools. Volunteers are being sought. People involved in paleodata archives, geostatistics and visualization are encouraged to contact Ellis by November 30: This email address is being protected from spambots.
