Working groups

The Varves Working Group (VWG) was active under the PAGES umbrella from 2009 to 2015 and is now an endorsed group.

The VWG have launched a monthly seminar series to talk about exciting research that would be of interest to the varve community. Early career scientists are especially encouraged to participate.


The seminars will be taking place virtually via Zoom/ MS Teams at 15:00 GMT and we will send details to join the meeting a few days before each seminar.
