Global Challenges for our Common Future: a paleoscience perspective

PAGES Young Scientists Meeting 2017

Eds: Loutre M-F, Evans MN, Fritz SC, Tabor C, Plumpton H, Barnett R, Zhang Y, Razanatsoa E & Dearing Crampton Flood E

Climate of the Past, 2018

The special issue brings together the most recent work from participants of PAGES 3rd Young Scientists Meeting, which was held from 7-9 May 2017 in Morillo de Tou, Spain. The papers address the processes of past climatic and environmental change, the long-term interactions between past climate conditions, environmental changes and human activities, and the abrupt changes in the Earth system. They involve modeling and reconstructions from proxy data and present new developments to improve our knowledge of past global changes.
