Past Global Changes and Their Significance for the Future: PAGES 1st Open Science Meeting
The 27 papers gathered here form part of the outcome of the 1st PAGES Open Science Meeting, held 19-23 April 1998 in London, UK. The title of the meeting was "Past Global Changes and Their Significance for the Future".
